Evolutionary anthropologist and creator of The Advanced Apes

I am an evolutionary anthropologist (MSc.), creator of The Advanced Apes, and science writer currently working on an animated science channel with PBS Digital Studios. My writing has appeared in Scientific American, Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, Jane Goodall Institute, American Humanist, Humanity+, and my blog is hosted and promoted by Svbtle. My academic research has focused on the species-level differences between humans and chimpanzees. For my doctorate, I would like to integrate evolutionary anthropological and cybernetic theory to better understand our system emergence and evolution.
