Congratulations to Ph.D candidate Alex DeCasien! Her 2nd year qualification paper was recently published, with Professors James Higham and Scott Williams as co-authors. The paper’s research found that “those [non human primates] who munched on fruit instead of leaves had 25 percent more brain tissue, even when controlling for body size and species relatedness” (NPR).
The research generated quite a bit of media attention in publications including Science, the BBC, Scientific American, New Scientist, The Guardian, and The Smithsonian.
The Department recently hosted, ‘Anthropology in Color’ an all day pipeline workshop sponsored by GSAS. We received more than 40 applications and brought in 20 undergraduates from area schools as well as DC, CT, Texas and South Carolina. The day featured a workshop and networking event on grad school, the application process, departmental research and more! Thanks to all the Faculty, Staff and Students who participated.
