My research looks at the biomechanics of human and Neanderthal hands in respect to manipulative tool activities. I use scanning (microCT, MRI) to analyse bone structure and create finite element (FE) models of musculoskeletal tissue to test how they respond to force. My main interests are how can FE be used to understand how bone remodels under force, and the potential applications for FE musculoskeletal models to  infer past behavioural activity and as a tool to help future manual development. 


I completed my BA in Archaeology and Anthropology at the Univeristy of Oxford in 2014, and my MSt in Archaeology at the University of Oxford in 2015. I specialise in biological anthropology and analysing bone structure. 


I have been a Teaching Assistant on the undergraduate module 'Early Human Origins' 2016 - 2017.
