Biography

Professor, School of Human Evolution and Social Change

Anne C. Stone's Lab Web Page

Anne Stone is Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at the Arizona State University. Her specialization and main area of interest is anthropological genetics. Currently, her research focuses on population history and understanding how humans and the great apes have adapted to their environments, including their disease and dietary environments. This has three main strands: (a) Native American population history, (b) the evolutionary history of the Great Apes, and (c) understanding the co-evolutionary history of mycobacteria (specifically Mycobacterium tuberculosis and M. leprae, the causative agents of tuberculosis and leprosy, respectively) with human and non-human primates. She has been a Fulbright Fellow (1992-93) and a Kavli Scholar (2007), and in 2011 she was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She has served on the editorial boards of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology and the Journal of Human Evolution, and currently serves as a senior editor of Molecular Biology and Evolution.

Dr. Stone received undergraduate degrees in archaeology and biology from the University of Virginia. She has a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the Pennsylvania State University. During her graduate study, she received a Fulbright scholarship to study at the Ludwig Maximillian University in Munich, Germany with Dr. Svante Pääbo. After completing her Ph.D., Dr. Stone received a National Institutes of Health NRSA Post-doctoral fellowship to work with Dr. Michael Hammer at the University of Arizona. Before joining the faculty at ASU in 2003, Dr. Stone taught at the University of New Mexico.

 

Education

1996 Doctor of Philosophy in Anthropology, Pennsylvania State University

1989 Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology and Biology, University of Virginia 

Research Interests

As a professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, my specialization and main area of interest is anthropological genetics. In particular, I am working on applications of population genetics to questions concerning the origins, population history and evolution of humans and the great apes.

At present, my research examines the biological history of Native Americans, both ancient and modern, with a current focus on native Peruvian populations. I am also interested in the evolution and genetic diversity of primates, particularly the genus Pan, which includes chimpanzees and bonobos. This research includes investigating genetic variation using mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome sequences, as well as autosomal markers to understand population history.

Finally, I am examining the phylogeny and evolution of Mycobacteria, particularly tuberculosis in both modern and ancient contexts.
