Research Interests
My research explores how evolution has shaped the bones and joints of different primate species, and the role of phylogeny and ecology in these processes. I just finished a project on the skeletal adaptations and evolution of locomotion of pitheciin primates with SE Walker-Pacheco and our work is featured in a Cambridge volume on the pitheciins. I also recently co-edited a Springer volume on the biology, behavior, and ecology of the marmosets and callimicos of South America (see above). I am working on a new collaborative project that focuses on the anatomy and locomotion of the night monkey (genus Aotus). Other ongoing projects include the analysis of faunal remains from Suriname harpy eagle predation, and the foraging adaptations of the golden lion tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia). Finally, I am collaborating with two students on two projects, one involving the faunal remains from Suriname, and the other on the origins of malocclusion in postindustrial populations.

Research Interests
Religion, healing, southern Africa, globalization, immigration, transportation My research concerns the Christianized healing practices of the prophets of central Mozambique, a network of people possessed by biblical spirits who work to heal individual bodies afflicted with illness as well as social bodies recovering from the effects of warfare and dislocation. I recently collaborated on an edited volume about healing in southeastern Africa. The book addresses the important relationship between African healing practices and borders of various sorts, which healers both transgress and reify in the course of their work. I am also interested in material culture, especially the ways objects, buildings, and other materialities figure in healing practices.
