Dr. McAfee grew up and attended college in Ohio before moving westward for graduate school, where he specialized in the evolution and functional morphology of fossil sloths. Afterwards he taught at schools in Nebraska and Missouri before moving back to Ohio for five years. He now applies his diverse anatomy skills at PCOM Georgia while continuing his research, which has expanded with collaborations that include field work in the Dominican Republic and locally with cave sites in Georgia and Alabama. The other side of this work involves geomorphometrics using 3D surface scans to explore the changes and variations in sloth anatomy and morphology.
