Research Interests

Hominin evolution, field paleoanthropology, hominin evolutionary anatomy, comparative primate anatomy, fluctuating odontometric asymmetry

I am actively involved in both laboratory and field research. My active lab-based projects include comparative soft tissue research of chimpanzees, macaques, and baboons using gross dissection and MRI. Presently, I am supervising multiple projects, including the evaluation of variants in coronary pathways of Macaca mulatta (Rhesus macaque), M. fascicularis and Papio Anubis; a survey of forelimb ligaments and their attachments in M. fascicularis; and the assessment of m. pectoralis minor in Pan Troglodytes. Previous research areas have also included assessing spatio-temporal variation of stress and developmental (in)stability, via fluctuating odontometric asymmetry, among extant and extinct mammalian taxa and the identification and documentation of human skeletal remains.

My current paleobiological field research is situated within the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, North-West Province, South Africa, at the fossil primate-bearing site of Haasgat and in the adjoining Provence of Gauteng, at the fossil site of Hoogland. I am involved with three projects which focus on the primate material recovered from Haasgat: (i) analysis of the expanded Cercopithecoidea sample, (ii) analysis of the cercopithecidae postcrania, and (iii) analysis of the expanded craniodental remains of Papio angusticeps.
