Darren Curnoe’s Blog

Darren-Curnoe_3_LR copyWho am I?  An evolutionary biologist, palaeontologist  and archaeologist specialising in human evolution based at the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia).

I am deeply passionate about science 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 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.
