Research Interests: Fossil ape and human functional anatomy, paleobiology and evolution
Dr. Deane is interested in all aspects of paleoanthropology, however, his research utilizes a functional and comparative approach to non-human primate anatomy to reconstruct the paleobiology and behaviour of fossil apes and humans. In particular, his research explores i) the influence of dietary behaviour on anterior dental morphology (incisors and canines) and the role of diet and mastication in ape and human evolution and ii) the functional anatomy of fossil ape hands and feet as it relates to locomotion and positional behavior. Research in the Deane laboratory involves both 2D and 3D morphometric analysis.
