Our research interests mostly focus on functional morphology of the masticatory apparatus in humans and non human primates, and on the importance of the role of diet in human evolution. We use different methods and approaches mostly based on highly sophisticated computer models, ranging from dental wear studies to biomechanics and morphological analyses.
Changes in diet is a key event in human evolution. We’re reconstructing the diets of our human ancestors using a multi-disciplinary approach.
Advancing our understanding on the evolution of human dentition using 3D digital modelling and engineering tools.
Analysing the relationships between craniofacial structures, occlusal wear and normal and altered masticatory function, building multi-functional computer models.
Extant non-human primates are an important source of comparative information for the reconstruction of the diets of extinct hominins. Here we analyse dental microwear of a large comparative dataset of non-human primates.
We're always interested in collaborating with bright and motivated researchers, clinicians and industry. Whether you want to research, study or partner with us to accelerate our discoveries, find out about the work we do.
