Current positions

Post-Doctoral Research Associate


I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Archaeology and Anthropology from the University of Bristol in 2011, followed by an MSc in Palaeolithic Archaeology and Palaeoanthropology from University College London in 2012. My PhD dissertation titled “Evolution of Dental Topography in the Endemic Primate and Rodent Radiations of Africa and South America” (2020, Stony Brook University, USA), quantified, reconstructed, and compared the disparity and diversity patterns of anthropoid primates and hystricognath rodents using the Eocene – Miocene fossil record of Africa and South America.
