Who am I? An evolutionary biologist, archaeologist 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 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.
