Ask a Scientist – Primates* of the Caribbean: Understanding diversity and extinction (*and a few other mammals)

Siobhán Cooke is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Functional Anatomy and Evolution at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She teaches courses in human anatomy and mammalian evolution and conducts reach on the evolution of Caribbean, Central and South American primates and other mammals. She is particularly interested in the functional morphology of jaws and teeth and uses various techniques to reconstruct what extinct animals ate, which helps her understand their ecology. Additionally, she is interested in extinction and extinction processes and is conducting research on Hispaniola to better understand mammalian extinction on the island during the last 10,000 years.
