Biography

Professor and Undergraduate Director,  School of Human Evolution and Social Change

Associate Director,  Center for Bioarchaeological Research

Christopher Stojanowski is a bioarchaeologist who specializes in the analysis of human skeletal remains and dentition. He uses information from ancient sites to reconstruct the lives of past peoples, focusing on the Holocene skeletal record of the New World and Africa. His work is based in evolutionary theory and quantitative variation but uses information from morphological traits to infer the social contexts and changing dynamics of past human communities. He has written on community organization and ethnogenesis in the colonial Southeast, Archaic period human biological variation in North America, and Early and Middle Holocene climatic adaptations in the Sahara Desert. He is interested in dentition, generally, spatial analysis, and multivariate analysis of complex phenotypes. He is currently PI of the Gobero Archaeological Project focusing on North African prehistory and is Director of the Global Dental Phenomics Database whose goal is to archive and disseminate human dental cast data from around the world.
