Although he earned his Ph.D. in anthropology from Penn State, Dr. Kevin Flaherty comes to Augustana to teach anatomy and neuroanatomy. His primary research interest is craniofacial development, and he has pursued projects in bone cell differentiation, craniosynostosis, how cartilage affects skull growth, and the measurement of developmental timing in mouse embryos. Kevin also has a great professional interest in pedagogy, in particular the best methods for facilitating student learning of anatomy. When not at work, he enjoys running, playing video and board games, playing fantasy football, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
