Michael Coquerelle is currently employed as a Marie Curie doctoral fellow (EVAN Training Network). He is a Ph.D. student working on growth and developmental patterns in primate mandibles. This work is supervised by José Braga, Gerhard W. Weber and Demetrios Halazonetis.

Using CT scans and 3D landmark data, including semilandmarks on curves and surfaces, I study shape and form variation of subadult and adult mandibles among extant hominoids in order to analyze the patterns of allometric changes and sexual dimorphism during ontogeny.
Also, I would like to include information on the location of the erupted teeth as well as the developing teeth and relate this information to mandibular shape and form changes in juvenile Homo and Pan.The main purpose is to reveal constraints of mandible caused by the developing lower dentition and the impact on sexual dimorphism.
