Kaye Reed
President's Professor
Evolutionary Anthropology 


Christopher Campisano
Assistant Professor
Evolutionary Anthropology
Since 2002, Reed has been directing field work in the Ledi-Geraru region of Ethiopia in search of hominin fossils. During the 2013 field season, she co-led an international research team with Campisano, and the years of groundwork paid off with a startling find: a 2.8-million-year-old fossilized jaw of Homo lineage. The fossil's date places it in a timeframe for which there is little physical evidence of human ancestors, making the discovery a pivotal one.
