I am a doctoral student at the Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology. Primarily I am interested in extant and extinct primates (especially chimpanzees and hominins).
My research will focus on the form and function of hard tissues of the masticatory apparatus as well as on dietary adaptation. The main target is to quantify dental tissues three-dimensionally getting a more complete picture of physiological responses to dietary shifts, and to find out how these shifts are reflected in tooth wear.
