My research explores the form-function paradigm through the use of morphometrics and biomechanics. Engineering principles are applied to the study of bone (mandibular, appendicular) and teeth in order to establish predictable relationships between the design of structures and their customary functions. In addition, I use force platforms and high-speed videography to analyze locomotor events. I commonly evaluate ontogenetic patterns in feeding or locomotor function and have collaborated with paleontologists to reconstruct behaviors of extinct animals (such as saber-tooth cats) using the form-function relationships established for extant animals.
