Biography

Director and President’s Professor, School of Human Evolution and Social Change

Research Associate, Institute of Human Origins

Kaye Reed's main research interest is in using community ecology of primates and mammals as a research tool to 1) understand living diversity and biogeography across continents and within regions, and 2) use the identification and analyses of mammalian fauna from Plio-Pleistocene hominin localities to understand community structure through time and across space, and to 3) reconstruct the habitat of fossil hominins. Current field research is focused on early hominin sites ( Australopithecus afarensis and early Homo ) in the Afar Region of Ethiopia and understanding the behavioral ecology of hominins that used bifacial technology in the Pleistocene of South Africa.
