Dr. Hogg is an Associate Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at FGCU.  Dr. Hogg earned his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, and his M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, as part of the New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology (NYCEP).  He went on to serve as a Postdoctoral Lecturer in the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the University of Missouri School of Medicine before joining FGCU in 2011.  He is a member of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists.



Dr. Hogg currently teaches human anatomy and neuroanatomy to PT, AT, and ES students in the Movement Science series, as well as pre-occupational therapy students in the OTH Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Neuroanatomy courses.

Dr. Hogg’s primary research interest is in the field of human and primate evolution, using mineralized tissue (tooth and bone) histology to assess evolution in growth and development as well as biomechanics.  He is particularly interested in understanding the interaction of skeletal physiology with nervous and endocrine physiology in the regulation of growth and metabolism over the course of evolution, and also in applying this understanding to clinical scenarios involving skeletal health.
