Lab Alumni

Ryan Brankovic

Undergraduate, USC

Ryan worked on the functional morphology of carnivoran pelves, which included laser scanning bones, creating 3D models, and performing 3D geometric morphometric analyses.

Stephanie Costa

M.A. (2015), Boston University School of Medicine

William Byrd

M.S. (2019), USC

Will spent a semester in the lab working on the carnivoran pelvic functional morphology project. 

Stephanie used 3D geometric morphometrics to study the obstetrical implications of sexual dimorphism in hominoid os coxae for her Master’s thesis at Boston University School of Medicine.

MA Abstract

Daniela Cruz

Undergraduate, Health and Human Sciences B.A. (2020), Public Health M.S. (2021), USC

Daniela started working in the lab in January 2019 and has experience laser scanning carnivore pelvic bones, post-processing pelvic bone surface models, and segmenting tarsal bones from micro-CT scans of galagid species.

Jocelyn Morales

Undergraduate, Human Biology B.S. (2020), Global Medicine M.S. (2020), USC

Jocelyn started working in the lab in August 2018 and has experience laser scanning carnivore pelvic bones, landmarking pelvic surface models, and segmenting tarsal bones from micro-CT scans of galagid species.
