Human adaptation has always been my focus, and it has led me to do studies in health, prehistory, human biology, culture, and skeletal biology. Whatever forces impact human development individually and societally, interest me. I am currently working on research concerning two general topics:

  • Metabolism, Breathing and Nasal Morphology - Why People Vary and Health Implications
  • Southern Oregon Coast Prehistory
