Area of Expertise

Dr. Perchalski’s research is on how arboreal animals navigate complex environments, with a particular focus on lemurs moving down steep supports. Past projects that she has worked on include looking at bone remodeling in response to activity to reconstruct the behavior of past human populations and extinct primates. Dr. Perchalski has also spent multiple field seasons working in Wyoming looking for early Eocene mammals. By combining observation of live animal behavior with her background in functional morphology, Dr. Perchalski seeks to contribute to the understanding of how extinct animals evolved to move in specialized ways.
