Justin Ledogar, Assistant Research Professor

Justin Ledogar

My primary research interests focus on feeding biomechanics and dietary adaptations in extant primates, including modern humans, as well as in fossil hominin species. I apply a range of methods in addressing the questions that interest me, including computer-assisted engineering techniques and the mechanical testing of primate foods in the wild.
