Research Focus:


Andrew is a paleoecologist and paleoanthropologist with a focus on the ecological context of human evolution in Africa during the Plio-Pleistocene. He is currently studying the spatial distribution of functional traits in African mammal communities to better understand how the patterning of functional diversity reflects habitat heterogeneity and environmental correlates such as annual precipitation and vegetation cover.

Andrew is currently working on the ETE pairs through time project.
