Welcome to the Skeletal Biology Lab

We study the evolution and function of the musculo-skeletal system, with a primary focus on using experimental and morphometric approaches to addressing how and why the human body looks the way it does. Current experimental research projects include the biomechanics and evolution of running, walking, throwing, chewing, food processing, and sweating. We also work on morphometric and developmental studies of craniofacial growth in humans, hominins, and other mammals.
