Chris Stringer, Natural History Museum, London, UK
Chris Stringer has worked at The Natural History Museum London since 1973, and is now Research Leader in Human Origins and a Fellow of the Royal Society. His early research was on the relationship of Neanderthals and early modern humans in Europe, but through his work on the Recent African Origin model for modern human origins, he now collaborates with archaeologists, dating specialists and geneticists in attempting to reconstruct the evolution of modern humans globally. He has excavated at sites in Britain and abroad, and is a founding member of the Pathways to Ancient Britain project, funded by the Calleva Foundation. He has published over 250 scientific papers, and his recent books include Homo britannicus (2006), The Complete World of Human Evolution (2011, with Peter Andrews), and most recently The Origin of our Species (UK)/Lone Survivors (USA).
