Ritzman Lab

Comparative anatomy of primate skulls

PI: Terry Ritzman, PhD

The Ritzman Lab is interested in the comparative anatomy of the skull in primates as it relates to human evolution. The lab employs the comparative method and direct studies of fossil hominins to make inferences regarding the evolutionary processes that operated during the course of human evolution, as well as the patterns, documented by the fossil record, that were produced by these processes.
