Biography

Gabrielle Russo’s research focuses on the functional morphology, the relationship between structure and function, and evolution of the primate musculoskeletal (locomotor) skeleton system. In her research, she employs comparative, evolutionary, and developmental approaches, and a number of morphometric (form measuring) techniques. Her research program aims to answer questions regarding three major transitions in the axial skeleton that occurred during hominoid (apes and humans) evolution: tail loss, the adoption of upright trunk posture, and adaptations to bipedal (two-legged) locomotion.
