Kimberly received her PhD from the University of Missouri in 2015. Since then, she has been focused on understanding the role of climbing throughout primate evolution. Her research program employs experimental models to explore the functional morphology, biomechanics, and behavioral adaptations related to different forms of climbing and arboreal living. She is also interested in growth and development, and the ways in which climbing and other forms of activity can impact the musculoskeletal system of primates and other mammals.
