Intro to Evolutionary Anthropology

(EVANTH101)

The introductory lecture survey and lab course covers the study of human origins and variation within the context of primate evolutionary history and ecology. Covers the scientific method; mechanisms of inheritance and population genetics; principles of evolutionary biology and systematics; primate ecology and evolution; the human fossil record; modern human adaptation and variation; the origins of human culture.

Also, when my course went remote during the covid-19 pandemic, I created and curated online content, including short vidoes, about the human fossil record. If you are interested in learning or looking for additional study materials on the topic, feel free to check it out: EVANTH101 remote content.

Primate Ecology

(EVANTH253)

This lecture course has two primary objectives. First, this course will introduce students to ecological concepts and provide an overview of the ways that primates interact with their environment. Second, it will help students develop research-related skills. In particular, this course will familiarize students with the processes behind how research findings are disseminated to the wider scholarly community. This course fulfills a natural science and research credit.

Primate Conservation

(EVANTH359)

Many nonhuman primates are threatened with extinction due to various human activities or disturbances. In this seminar course, we will cover the basics of conservation biology, the major threats facing primates, and some of the strategies that have been used to conserve primate species. This course fulfills a natural science and ethical inquiry credit.
