Dr. Hartstone-Rose runs the Comparative Anatomy & Functional Morphology Research Lab in which he and his students study anatomical adaptation predominantly to dietary and locomotive specialization in mammals, especially primates and carnivores. They study this in live animals (e.g., feeding experiments), examination of muscles (e.g., the muscles of mastication), and analysis of bones and teeth (e.g., the parts of the skeletons that interact with foods) with the ultimate goal of using these analyses of modern animals to deduce the abilities (e.g., diets) of extinct species from their fossil remains. Dr. Hartstone-Rose also has several funded projects focused on the effects of participation in STEM activities on students’ interest in, and career orientation toward, STEM professions, particularly in students from historically marginalized backgrounds.
