Main research question

My work focuses on the postcranial anatomy of extant and extinct primates and particularly on the interplay between positional behaviors, morphological data and ecological data.

Topics of study

I notably work on fossil monkeys from the Shungura formation in order to infer their ecological and adaptive dynamics in a context of changing climatic factors.
