My research is focused reconstructing the life histories of extinct primates, specifically the subfossil lemurs of Madagascar . I focus on the skeletal remains of these species; reconstructing aspects of life history such as diet, posture, and locomotor adaptations. I am especially invested in the use of non-destructive 3D imaging technology in my research, relying heavily on microCT and 3D modeling of skeletal structures such as teeth and limb bones. In addition to studying the remains of subfossil lemurs, I am also interested in primate behavior and conservation (both in Madagascar and worldwide) and in extinction events as represented in the fossil record with applications to modern issues.
