Andrew Du

Andrew Du is interested in the ecological context of hominin evolution. He uses macroecological method and theory in order to understand how paleo-communities were assembled and structured across space 1.5 million years ago on the east side of Lake Turkana. The ultimate goal is to see how hominins partitioned their behavioral activities across the paleo-landscape in this ecological context. Parallel interests include studying modern ecological landscapes as informative analogues for paleo-landscapes.
