Christine Janis received her undergraduate degree (B.A., Natural Science) from the University of Cambridge, and her Ph.D from Harvard University. She joined the faculty of Brown University in 1983. Her research interests related to ungulate functional morphology (feeding and locomotion), and the correlation between anatomy and behaviour, which can then be used to determine the probable behaviour of extinct taxa. More recently her work has focused on the structure of ungulate palaeocommunities, how changes over time reflect climatic and environmental changes, and how these palaeocommunities can then be used as palaeoenvironmental proxies.
