Biography

I am a PhD student in biological anthropology at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am interested in applying quantitative genetics to morphological variation in the postcranium and establishing genotype-phenotype map. More specifically, I am interested in dissecting the various effects (climate, activity, and genetic variation) on postcranial robusticity and morphological integration of limb elements. I also have minor interests in bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology.
