Can palaeobiology contribute to behavioural ecology? Perspectives from human evolution
Prof. Rob Foley researches and teaches human evolution at the University of Cambridge, where he is the Leverhulme Professor of Human Evolution. With Marta Mirazon Lahr he co-founded the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies (LCHES), a research centre devoted to multi-disciplinary approaches (biological, archaeological, genetic and behavioural) to human evolution. He has worked on a range of topics in human evolution and prehistory, from the early hominins and bipedalism to the evolution of human social behaviour, to the origins of modern humans and historical linguistics and human diversity.
