Position title: Graduate Student
Jack is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Anthropology who is interested in hominoid evolution. Working under Professor Travis Pickering, he is interested in the relationship between morphology and locomotory behaviors in apes and modern humans, especially in the lumbar spine. He believes new tools and technology can help us better understand our evolutionary past and the processes that contributed to our bipedal locomotion. In addition to his dissertation, Jack is interested in science communication and outreach events that bring science and the public together.
