My research and training in physical anthropology has been focused on the positional behavior, ecology, and functional morphology of living and fossil primates. I've performed zoo research (Monkey Jungle, Miami, FL) and museum studies (all over the United States), as well as participated in paleontological field research at Grizzly Buttes, Wyoming, and Mahenge and the Manonga Valley, Tanzania. My current primary research interest is in ecomorphology, the study of the relationship between anatomy and ecology, especially as it relates to fossil primates and primate communities. During the next few years, when I'm not busy keeping the CSHO labs and collections in order, I hope to finish my doctoral dissertation.
