I am a biological anthropologist, and the Supervisor of the Yale University Biological Anthropology Laboratories since 2004.  I started out in archaeology, but my current research is on extant primate ecology & behavior and tropical forest conservation.  I also work on human osteology and pathology.

I was that NYC kid who spent all of his time at the American Museum of Natural History.  I’ve pursued anthropology all of my life, studying at CUNY/Hunter College, the George Washington University, and Yale University.  I am fortunate to have conducted fieldwork in Panama, Kenya, Uganda, the DRC, Alaska, Connecticut and Brooklyn NY, my hometown.
