College Fellow
Postdoctoral Researcher

I study the evolution of human behavior and the physiological, social and ecological forces that shaped that behavior through time. I am particularly interested in the origin of our own genus, Homo, approximately two million years ago. My research combines laboratory studies of uniquely human behaviors, such as throwing and stone tool making, with fieldwork in northwestern Kenya, investigating our ancestors’ ecology and social organization.
