Daniel E. Lieberman

Daniel E. Lieberman is a Harvard University professor who looks to human evolution for clues as to why our bodies function the way they do. Lieberman was educated at Harvard and Cambridge Universities, and he taught at Rutgers and George Washington Universities before he was appointed to the Harvard faculty in 2001. He is trained in paleoanthropology and serves as chair of the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology and principal investigator of the Skeletal Biology Lab. He is the author of The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and Disease and The Evolution of the Human Head. Lieberman conducts field research among present-day hunter-gatherers and subsistence farmers in Kenya and Mexico to better understand how we all lived prior to the modern way of life.
