Short Bio

I am a biological anthropologist primarily interested in reconstructing lives of humans and their ancestors through comparative anatomy and functional morphology. My research focuses on reconstructing activity and locomotor patterns through long bone cross-sectional analysis (primarily of the femur) but I also explore questions related to neanderthal and modern human dynamics at the end of Pleistocene through a research at the Lapa do Picareiro cave site in Portugal. I have also done some work on methods used in forensic sciences.
