The research interest of Julia A. Schultz is functional morphology of the early mammalian dentition. Her PhD thesis was concerned with the reconstruction of mastication pattern of fossil mammal species using striation analysis, facet formation and wear pattern. Since 2012 she is in a post-doc position in the Steinmann-Institut (Universität Bonn) studying mammalian evolution during the Mesozoic focusing on 3D-reconstruction, virtual simulation and micro-computed tomography.
