Research Interest

Dr. Davis is broadly interested in diversity in mammalian craniofacial morphology and the patterns of evolutionary adaptation and constraint that can be inferred from studying the form and function of extant species. Her work has focused primarily on bats and carnivorans, two mammalian orders that exhibit tremendous diversity in dietary specializations and associated morphology. She is interested in exploring the utility of diverse imaging techniques in visualizing and communicating studies of studies of anatomy and behavior. Dr. Davis incorporates comparative, functional, and evolutionary perspectives and imaging in her courses.
