main research interest is in
the ecological context of primate & hominin evolution. Identification
& analyses of mammalian fauna from Plio-Pleistocene hominin localities
provides the framework for studying evolution of hominins and primates.
Current field research is focused on early hominin sites (Australopithecus
afarensis and early Homo) in the Afar Region of Ethiopia
and understanding the behavioral ecology of modern humans through
the analysis of fauna from cave sites in Spain, Morocco, and South
teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Undergraduate
courses include Stones, Bones and Human Evolution, Fossil Primates,
Ecology and Human Evolution, and the Hadar Paleoanthropology Field
School. Graduate courses include Zooarchaeology and Paleoecology I,
Primate Paleobiology, Primate Communities, Paleoenvironments of Hominid Sites, and Ecology and Human Evolution.
