Who am I? I am a scientist and former journalist specialising in human evolution and related areas based at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
Why do I write? My blog is written with the aim of conveying my passion for science, understanding who we are as a species, and what we can learn from the past to understand the challenges we face today and into an uncertain future.
It takes an insider’s view – with all the insights and baggage that brings – about the science of human evolution, its history, and the people who have and continue to practice it.
