TITLE : Initiative d’Excellence de l’Université de Bordeaux (IdEx Bordeaux) post-doctoral fellow. Host lab, UMR 5199 PACEA.


WORK : +033 (0) 5 40 00 25 47



KEYWORDS : craniofacial, baboons, quantitative genetics, population variation, multivariate statistics, comparative morphology, molecular evolution, genotype-phenotype mapping


  • intrapopulation variation in craniofacial morphology
  • how genetic correlations bias the production and maintenance of phenotypic variation
  • primate evolution, especially of sensory systems and the craniofacial complex as a whole
  • biomedical imaging techniques applied to anthropological research
  • comparative morphology, evolution, and genetic variation of papionins (baboons, mangabeys, and mandrills/drills)


1. Craniofacial Aging Patterns. IdEx Bordeaux fellowship (2016-2018). Entitled "CARPI DIAM : Craniofacial Age-Related Patterns in Individuals : Disimilarities, Implications, and Anthropological Meanings." This project assesses changes in the craniofacial skeleton of adult baboons and adult humans as they continue aging. Main areas of focus will be on whether these patterns differ between species, regions of the cranium (e.g., around the oral cavity as opposed to around the orbits), and sexes.

2. Craniofacial Genetic Variation. A collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine, Department of Molecular and Human Genetics to sequence 4Mb of a large sample of baboon genomes to perform association mapping with various measures of craniofacial variation that were phenotyped in the same individuals.
