Dr. Stéphane Montuelle

My research focuses on the role of predator-prey interactions in evolution of vertebrates.  Of key interest is the evolution of feeding behavior and the coordination of locomotor and feeding movements during prey capture.

Dr. Andre Schmidt

I'm interested in the locomotor biomechanics of mammals moving on natural substrates (fallen logs, branches) and substrates that are smaller than body width.   I’m focusing on the differences between climbing and level locomotion using the latest techniques to quantify movements, gaits, and forces during locomotion.

Dr. Cornelia Krause

My current research focuses on the functional morphology of the tarsal complex in sengis (Elephant shrews) in comparison to other micromammals. The evolutionary history of sengis is a topic of interest for understanding the diversification of the proposed group, Afrotheria, and plays a key role for understanding the evolution of the modern African fauna.

Dr. Lisa Cashmore

My research is interested in hominoid functional morphology, with a particular focus on the evolution of the hand. I am currently looking at primate upper limb bilateral asymmetry and what this can tell us about the evolution of handedness in hominids.

Dr. Daryl Lam

My research interests are focused on the systematics of algae. Currently, I am working on a NSF sponsored Tree of Life project focused on the taxonomy and molecular phylogeny of the red algae (RedATOL) in the laboratory of Professor Morgan L. Vis.
