Claudia Astorino


I am a lesbian and an intersex person and I am an evolutionary biologist and a biological anthropologist. //

I am a graduate student in the New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology and soon-to-be postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley. I study ranges of morphological variation in the skull and dentition in humans, our fossil hominin ancestors, and across mammals broadly. My research specifically focuses on dental evolutionary development and levels of sexual dimorphism. I advocate for diversity in STEM as a Steering Committee member of gAyAPA (@QueerBioanth) & as the founder of the NYC Annual Intersex Awareness Day events.
