Profile: Darren Curnoe

Paleontologist, biologist & archeologist

Paleontologist, evolutionary biologist and archaeological scientist interested in all aspects of human evolution – but as it is a vast and multidisciplinary subject – I have tended to focus my research on reconstructing and understanding the hominin (human) fossil record of the last 2.6 million years (or Pleistocene Epoch), with a focus on the genus Homo.
I have worked mostly on fossil remains in Australia, South Africa, Kenya, China and Malaysia. My interests range from the earliest representatives of the human genus (Homo) through to the evolution of modern humans (H. sapiens) and settlement of Eurasia by our species.
I am also a former TV journalist with a passion for communicating science, especially human origins, to a broad audience.

The Paleo Diet and the Unprovable Past
