Nicole Torres Tamayo is a research fellow at the Department of Paleobiology at the National Museum of Natural Sciences (Madrid, Spain).
She uses 3D geometric morphometrics of sliding semilandmarks to address the torso variation in living Homo sapiens and extant non-human Hominoidea. She focuses her research on the study of the (co-)variation of torso structures in extant Hominoidea. She is particularly interested in understanding the patterns of thorax and pelvis covariation in humans and other primates, and their impact on the evolution of human body shape. She analyzes torso 3D models through 3D geometric morphometric techniques.
She is also an advocate for open science and data sharing, and this defines her interests and concerns above any discipline.
