2016 Ph.D., Evolutionary Anthropology

How has being an Evolutionary Anthropology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"The evolutionary anthropology program at Duke furnished an integrative understanding of the behavior, cognition, and evolution of humans and other primates - and equipped me with unrivaled research training and opportunities"

What advice would you give students in Duke's Evolutionary Anthropology programs? 

"I would encourage students to relish their time at Duke and in the program, to take advantage of the department's many unique resources for learning and research (e.g., anatomy labs, the Duke Lemur Center), and to have confidence that they will find their path. A degree like EvAnth, that is focused on cross-disciplinary problem-solving, prepares you for any number of future directions, some of which will unveil themselves only through novel experiences. Try things out and see what works for you!"
