Research Areas: 
My research interests include the functional morphology and phylogenetics of mammals. I have studied the evolutionary morphology of several groups of extant and extinct mammals, such as primates and treeshrews (Scandentia). My previous research has focused on the functional postcranial morphology of treeshrews (Scandentia) and their supraordinal relationships to primates and other euarchontan mammals. I continue to work on their interordinal relationships with Drs. Jonathan Bloch and Mary Silcox, and I have begun investigating their intraordinal relationships with Drs. Link Olson and Trina Roberts.
