Biography

 

Education

BSc (Honours) Biological Anthropology, Oxford Brookes, 2015 (Dissertation: ‘Is there a co-evolutionary relation between Plio-Pleistocene hominin dental morphology and tool use?’)

MSc Bioarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology, University College London, 2016 (Dissertation: ‘Continuous Dental Eruption: How does the occlusal wear of mandibular molars affect their continuous eruption?’)

 

Research

I am a postgraduate research student studying towards my PhD in bioarchaeology. My research topic focuses on the morphological structure of trabecular bone in the mandibular condyle. I use high resolution micro-CT scanning to study the three-dimensional structure of trabecular bone in different human and primate populations. I aim to illustrate how changes in diet and subsistence can affect loading and mechanics in the jaw, and how this impacts the development of the trabecular bone.
