My main research interest is the study of ape and human evolution. My primary focus is to document origins of the ape lineage, the evolutionary roots of the human lineage, and the adaptive emergence of human bipedalism, in the fossil record of the Miocene, approximately 25 to 5 million years, in Africa. My paleontological field research is at sites in the Lake Victoria and Lake Turkana basins in Kenya.
