Evelyn is a current graduate student a ASU's School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) in the evolutionary anthropology approach. Her research focuses on the growth and development of primate dental morphology and explores how these processes produce variation within populations for natural selection to act on.
Evelyn's broader research interests include growth and development of the mammalian dentition and what it can tell us about human evolution. She has completed paleoanthropological and archaeological field work in Kenya's Rift Valley with the West Turkana Archaeological Project (WTAP) and the Later Prehistory of West Turkana project (LPWT). In addition, she has worked with Dr. Gary T. Schwartz in the Hard Tissue Biology laboratory on 3D imaging and analysis using microCT scanning technology.
Evelyn works as a Teaching Assistant for SHESC, assisting with both online and in person courses. Courses she has been a TA for include Incas, Mayas, and Aztecs (ASB223), Introduction to Global Health (ASB101), and Food and Culture (ASB 300).
