Andrew Du

Andrew Du is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago. He is interested in the role scale plays in our understanding of large-scale ecological and evolutionary patterns in human evolution. Specifically, he studies how time-averaging biases the ecological information recovered from mammalian fossil assemblages. He also has an interest in hominin macroevolutionary patterns, including the timing and rates of phenotypic evolution and taxic diversity change through time.

One question that unites all members of the human race is, “Where did we come from?” Historically, we as a species have addressed this question using origin stories and mythologies, but we can also turn to the fossil record for […]
