Walking with hominins

Walking with hominins

Research by Dr Ashleigh L Wiseman

I am a palaeoanthropologist based at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge. My current role is funded by the Leverhulme Trust and Isaac Newton Trust for a project entitled “How to build a hominin: predictive simulations of locomotion in human evolution”

Throughout this project, I will be building musculoskeletal models of hominins and determining how they could have moved. Please reach out to me if you would like to collaborate. I am especially looking for additional fossil material to be included in my project.
