Department of Anthropology (DoA)


Work at the DoA is aimed at understanding the evolutionary origins of human morphology and behavior. For both research areas we follow a dual approach.
The first is to identify the unique features of humans and reconstruct their evolutionary history.
The second is to develop explanations for these novel features based on broad biological principles that emerge from studies of living and fossil primates and other animals.
