My research interests include skeletal biology, biomechanics, developmental plasticity, and functional morphology. My research focuses on the interaction between ontogeny, physical activity, and the structural organization of trabecular bone in humans. I use high resolution µCT imaging to study the three-dimensional trabecular bone structure. The aim of my project is to determine the effects of habitual physical activity on trabecular bone structure, to provide a novel way of reconstructing activity patterns in past human populations and hominins.
