Year of Entry: Fall 2019
Advisor: Bernard Wood
General Interests: Archaeology. Comparative Hominid and Hominin Morphologies. Epigenetics. Genetics. Human evolution. Hominid Paleontology. Population Ecology. Speciation.
1. Interested in understanding paleoecologies to examine if environmental stressors had any implications in the overall fitness, morphology and physiology of early hominids and hominins.
2. Interested in inspecting the magnitude in which paleo-environments had in the evolution of hominids and hominins, to determine if modern niche’s, with the consideration of climate change, are aiding in any phenotypic and/or genotypic directional change(s) within various populations of modern humans.
3. Interested in examining the plasticity of gene-environment interactions and their effects on odontogenesis and thus speciation of human ancestors between 3.5-1.5 MYA.
