Dr. Jaime Tanner is coming to Emerson after teaching Biology and Environmental Studies courses at Marlboro College for 10 years. She held the Darwin Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst from 2008 to 2010. Dr. Tanner’s research has focused on the relationship between feeding behavior and skull morphology, primarily in carnivorous mammals. This work takes an integrative approach, combining behavioral field work, performance data and work with museum collections to understand the shifting relationship between form and function throughout development and in response to environmental changes.
