Areas of Expertise
Paleoecology, Human evolution, Faunal analysis, Eastern Africa, Taphonomy
My research focuses on reconstructing the environmental conditions in which our ancestors evolved. Specifically, I work on eastern African animal fossils associated with the environments of Australopithecus anamensis, an early bipedal hominin.
My current research focuses on reconstructing the environmental condition in which our ancestors evolved – particularly the paleoenvironment of Australopithecus anamensis. I am also developing a standardized method to evaluate the taphonomic traces found on East African vertebrate fossils. See my current CV here.
