Research Summary/Interests

My research explores form and function relationships of the craniofacial complex during human growth and development and throughout primate evolutionary history.  My current work is aimed at understanding variation in the coordinated growth and development of craniofacial structures associated with skeletal malocclusions and craniofacial anomalies.
