Ashley is researching the relationship between anatomy and locomotor performance in developing birds.


Ashley is originally from California, where she earned bachelors degrees in Biology and Geology at the University of California, Davis.

She then went on to complete a Ph.D. at the University of Montana. See Ashley's UM Flight Laboratory page for more information.


Ashley is interested in functional morphology, and the development and evolution of locomotor capacity and performance.

Her work currently focuses on wing- and leg-based locomotion in birds and their theropod ancestors.
