I am currently employed as a Marie Curie doctoral fellow (EVAN Training Network) at the Department of Anthropology in Vienna, Austria. My studies are including the morphometric analysis of crania, mandibles and teeth of Australopithecines, early modern humans and extant hominoids.

The topics of my research will deal with the anatomical and reference-based (geometrical and statistical) virtual reconstruction of fossils, including questions of growth and development of the hominoid skulls. Using the toolkit of Virtual Anthropology (VA) and Geometric Morphometrics (GMM) this questions aim to examine the variation of developmental growth patterns and the cranial modularity in hominoids. Combining these methods with paleoecological and socioecological findings, this is an effort to reconstruct some aspects of human evolution.
