What makes our species unique? How did Homo sapiens evolve, migrate, and expand across the world hundreds of thousands of years ago and were we always alone, or did closely related species like Neanderthals coexist with us?
Julia Zichello, Ph.D., a scientist and educator at the Sackler Educational Laboratory for Comparative Genomics and Human Origins at the American Museum of Natural History will lead a discussion on the latest research in paleoanthropology and genetics that is prompting scientists to continually rethink the biological story of our species. Dr. Zichello is a biological anthropologist with research interests in skeletal and genetic variation in humans and closely related species.
