Biography:

I am a faculty member at the Center for Functional Anatomy and Evolution at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where I completed my doctorate in 2004. My work in Dr. Richtsmeier’s lab as a student sparked my interest in growth and development of the juvenile skull at both morphological and cellular levels. My current research interests include morphological integration, fluctuating asymmetry as an indication of developmental stability, brain dysmorphology in autism and related disorders, and morphometric methods and software.
