Dr. Crowley’s current projects revolve around using stable isotope biogeochemistry to detect ecological differences among modern and extinct communities of mammals. Currently, she examines the effects of habitat and dietary differences on the isotopic signatures in modern species. She then uses these isotopic patterns in modern individuals to understand dietary niches and habitats for animals in the past.
