Graduate student

I am interested in applying evolutionary theory to study all aspects of human evolution, from our genes and physiology to language and technology. Currently I am enrolled as an MA student in the Department of Archaeology with a specialization in palaeoanthropology. For my research project I am investigating the role limb proportions play in modern human throwing ability, and using this information to comment on the throwing ability of two groups of extinct hominins: the Australopiths and Neandertals.
