Human Biology Association · SoS 172- Zach Cofran and Homo Naledi – Ilium? I hardly knew him!

Cara cannibalizes pickles before she and Chris interview Dr. Zachary Cofran, an assistant professor of Anthropology at Vassar College who is affiliated with the Center for the Exploration of the Deep Human Journey at the University of Witwatersrand. Dr. Cofran received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2012 (GO BLUE!). Zachary studies human evolution, growth, and development and has been heavily involved in the Rising Star cave system in South Africa.
Zachary has a new paper out in the American Journal of Biological Anthropology called “The immature Homo naledi ilium from the Lesedi Chamber, Rising Star Cave, South Africa”
