Areas of Expertise

I am a broadly trained Vertebrate Comparative Anatomist who uses both model and non-model organisms to study the relationship between form and function. My studies focus on the anatomy and mechanical properties of tissues, especially soft ones, and how these might contribute to critical organismal functions such as walking and eating.
