Erin and Orang

Erin has focused in on the thermoregulatory challenges women face during different types of locomotor challenges.  Specifically, she has been investigating how females maintain heat balance during various bouts of (heat perturbing) walking and running; she has additionally clued in to variations in temperature maintenance at different parts of the menstrual cycle.

Erin’s work is done in collaboration with Quinton Ouellette and Kindra Fish.

Becca Pedersen

Becca is working on a series of studies using dental cementum analysis to understand population dynamics of extinct and extant populations of ungulates.  Of particular interest is her work on the Ammotragus lervia remains from Taforalt Cave as part of the ongoing Moroccan Caves research project. She is also actively investigating the possibility of developmental heterochrony in causing the dwarfism of deer populations on Blakely Island.

Kindra as CheetahKindra has focused in on the thermoregulatory challenges women face in different parts of their menstrual cycle.  She has been investigating how females maintain heat balance during small amounts of (heat perturbing) walking and running.

Kindra’s work is done in collaboration with Quinton Ouellette and Erin Apple.

Claire investigated the possibility that survival from cardiac arrest might depend upon the sex/gender of the person administering CPR. During her project she uncovered a series of interesting implications for how cardiovascular studies are done, particularly those done in “artificial” circumstances.

She will begin her career as a labor and delivery nurse  Autumn 2014.

Meerkat StudentsQuinton has been working on data which investigate female locomotor themoregulation.  He has particularly focused in on the changes in skin temperature at varying proximities to the core following bouts of differing locomotor intensity.

His work is done in collaboration with Kindra Fish and Erin Apple. Their work has been presented at the Erickson Research Conference.
