Nicole Reeves, PhD, is an anatomist and biological anthropologist with teaching and research interests that include human gross anatomy, cadaver-based dissection, skeletal biology, human variation and adaptation, functional anatomy of limbs, body mass estimation, and taphonomic processes. She received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas, her Master of Arts from Texas State University, and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Tennessee in 2014. Her dissertation research used computed tomography scans to investigate the mechanical and metabolic effects of obesity on cortical bone morphology throughout the human skeleton. After earning her PhD, Dr. Reeves taught at the University of West Georgia briefly before joining the Department of Anatomy at Ross University School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in 2015.
