Research Interests & Areas

My master's research is a comparative analysis of the extrinsic tongue muscles in primates to investigate if their development play a part in speech and if so, when it would have emerged in our lineage. In relation, I also have interest in both the hyoid and temporal styloid processes as points of articulation for extrinsic tongue muscles and in their own individual evolutionary development.
