Who am I? A scientist and science communicator, specialising in human evolution and related fields, based at the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). I am deeply passionate about science, especially human evolution, and the role it plays in building understanding about humanity and our place in nature.
Why do I write? My blog – Walking on Two Feet – aims to provide a frank, critical and innovative account of the science of human evolution, informed by the latest and quality peer reviewed scientific literature. My chief aim is to instill a deep understanding of human evolutionary history, it’s relevance to understanding contemporary challenges facing humanity, and the practice of this field of science, to the widest possible audience.
