Evolutionary Functional Morphology (among other things)

Our lab is in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of Missouri.

Our research focuses on vertebrate musculoskeletal physiology, form, and function in the contexts of animal locomotion and evolution. We integrate studies across multiple scales from micro-scale structural materials of bone to macro-scale whole bone morphology to evolutionary changes across vertebrate taxa and with comparisons to extinct organisms.

Here are a range of projects that we have worked on, many of which are ongoing. Click the image to jump to the research page:
