  • Skeletal Biology Laboratory | Department of Anthropology
    to maximize bone mass and prevent osteoporosis in living humans and for anthropological questions about the evolution of human bone size and shape Our approach to these questions combines comparative methods and experimental models including controlled experiments in wildtype and genetically modified strains To measure bone mass body composition and cortical and trabecular bone morphology we use two key imaging techniques peripheral dual energy x ray absorptiometry pDXA and microcomputed

    to understand how such conflict affects physiology and behavior Specifically I examine female counterstrategies to male coercive reproductive tactics such as infanticide I tackle this research from an evolutionary perspective while utilizing a comparative i e examining the same research question across different species and mechanistic i e assessing fecal hormone profiles approach My study subjects have been non human primates baboons and geladas living in their natural environments in

    interested in vocal communication primarily as it relates to other social behaviors How do vocalizations mediate social interactions What social factors might favor larger vocal repertoires Much of my research addresses sexual selection looking at how primates assess competitors and potential mates Recently I have become interested in hormone behavior interactions I use non invasive hormone sampling as a way to both measure the physiological consequences of behavior and to assess potential determinants of behavior Finally I am interested in the ways that ecology shapes social systems and behaviors My research addresses these questions in three types of free ranging primates 1 baboons members of the genus Papio in Ethiopia and Botswana 2 gelada monkeys Theropithecus gelada in Ethiopia and 3 howler monkeys members of the genus Alouatta in Mexico My research involves observation vocal recordings hormonal and genetic sampling as well as playback experiments Academic Background I received a B S in Zoology and Conservation Biology from the University of Wisconsin in 1993 I received a Ph D in Evolutionary and Population Biology from Washington University in 2000 For my dissertation I studied behavior and reproductive success in hybrid baboons in Ethiopia I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the
