I am a lesbian and I am an evolutionary anthropology PhD student.//

I’ve been interested in science ever since I was a kid. I majored in Anthropology as an undergraduate, and now I am studying aspects of sexual dimorphism in the human lineage. My Master’s thesis will focus on sexual dimorphism of canine teeth, and specifically in the formation of defects in the enamel called linear enamel hypoplasias. I am also interested in education outreach and teaching more people about the work that anthropologists do.
