BA Evolutionary Biology of the Human Species, Columbia University, New York

Laura joined the lab as a PhD student in autumn of 2020. She is interested in homoplasy, how ancestral form influences function, and the role of covariation and constraint in shaping the tempo and direction of evolution. Specifically, her research interest is in examining evolvability in primate limbs, with the aim of investigating claims of convergence in hominoid locomotor behaviors.
