Siobhán B. Cooke


I am queer and a lesbian and I am a paleontologist, biological anthropologist, and anatomist. //

I’m an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the Center for Functional Anatomy and Evolution. I teach medical gross anatomy and conduct research on the evolution of South American primates and other mammals. I am particularly interested in questions around diet and dentition, niche differentiation, and faunal change and extinction. I conduct fieldwork at several paleontological sites in Colombia and the Dominican Republic. I live in Baltimore with my wife, cat (true to stereotype), and collection of carnivorous plants (Nepenthes).
