Evolutionary science and medicine are becoming increasingly intertwined. Human bodies are not merely a product of our current biology, but also of deep evolutionary history that informs an understanding not only of how they work but why they developed this way. My main interests lie in the evolution of bipedal locomotion and how this relates to the modern human body. At Cambridge, I undertook an M.Phil. in Human Evolutionary Studies within the Division of Biological Anthropology examining evolutionary relationships between bipedality, energetics, encephalization, and cephalopelvic disproportion with the hope of applying the research to the pressing global health issue of maternal morbidity and mortality. I am also very interested in pediatrics and ontogeny, particularly in order to understand how to harness a child's natural growth patterns to treat or prevent skeletal disorders.
