Dr. Philipp Gunz

I am a biological anthropologist with a primary research interest in the evolution of human development. I study developmental and evolutionary changes in the growth patterns and morphology of modern humans, their relatives and fossil ancestors.

Here is my academic CV in PDF format.

You can find a current list of my scientific publications on Google Scholar.

My aim is to understand what makes us human by comparing our own species with our closest living and fossil relatives.
