Research Groups

NYCEP institutions, faculty, and students have led the development of several specialized research interest groups.


Bones and Behavior Working Group

The Bones and Behavior Working Group is dedicated to fostering a greater synthesis across biological anthropology with the specific aim of developing integrative approaches to research questions concerning human and primate adaptation.


Center for the Study of Human Origins

The mission of the Center for the Study of Human Origins (CSHO) in the Department of Anthropology at New York University is to enhance and facilitate research on all fields of biological anthropology and archaeology that are broadly related to the study of human origins and evolution from a biological and cultural perspective.


NYCEP Morphometrics Group

The NYCEP Morphometrics Group (NMG) is a loose association of researchers who share an interest in analyzing morphological evolution of primates using three-dimensional geometric morphometric (3D GM) methods.
