Stephanie E. Pierce
Thomas D. Cabot Associate Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology
Prof. Pierce’s research is focused on major morphological and ecological transitions in vertebrate evolution through an examination of the fossil record. Her work tends toward 3-D modeling and experimentation of the musculoskeletal system, with particular attention to the link between form and function. Current projects include the fin-to-limb transition, the 'reptile'-to-mammal transition, and evolution of the horse.
