Katarina Evans is a doctoral student in Anthropology at the CUNY Graduate Center, specializing in physical anthropology with a focus on the behavior and genetics of non-human primates. Prior to my PhD, Katarina graduated with a B.S. in Evolutionary Anthropology with high honors from the University of Michigan. Katarina has researched social behavior, motor cognition, nutritional ecology, and genetics in humans and non-human primates. For her dissertation, she plans to examine the evolution of coercive social bonds in hamadryas baboons. As an adjunct instructor at Queens College teaching Introduction to Human Evolution, she incorporates writing assignments in her classes to encourage students to reflect on class topics and express their thoughts and curiosities. As a part of the Writing at Queens program, she works with other fellows to create workshops on writing in a scientific context. These workshops aim to provide students with the tools to effectively convey their ideas and findings in a clear, professional, and intentional way.
