Richie Abel is a lecturer in musculoskeletal anatomy at Imperial College London. He obtained degrees in Zoology (BSc) and Palaeontology (MSc) before completing a PhD. His thesis examined bone growth and development in the primate pelvis. The study adopted micro-CT and geometric morphometrics to compare relative levels of plasticity and constraint. Comparisons were made across tissues (cortical and trabecular) as well as species (modern humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and monkeys). Richie is interested in studying bone quality, with particular regard to tissue development and senescence. The general aim is to improve the diagnosis and measurement of treatment outcomes for of metabolic bone diseases.
