I study the evolution of human bipedalism and the consequences of this process on musculoskeletal health. My research involves laboratory- and field-based investigations of the biomechanics of walking and running in humans and non-human primates. I use high-speed motion capture, inverse dynamics, ultrasound imaging and pedography, and apply my findings to interpreting fossil hominin morphology.
