I am an Assistant Research Professor at Duke University in the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology. I was previously a Kalbfleisch Postdoctoral Fellow in the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History in the Division of Paleontology.

In the summer of 2025, I will begin my position as Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Anthropology. If you or someone you know would like to pursue doctoral work with me, please do not hesitate to reach out. 

Research Interests

I research the dental morphology of living and extinct mammals including primates and treeshrews. I study dental form as a means of addressing questions of diet, development, and variation. I study aspects of the teeth such as dental topography, enamel thickness, and dental tissue proportions.
