Kara C Hoover


Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Alaska. Associate Faulty Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Alaska. Honorary Research Fellow, Anthropology, Durham University. I am an evolutionary bioanthropologist interested in the genetic and ecological context for human adaptation. My research in population genetics investigates questions about human sensory ecology and evolutionary adaptation with regards to the human sense of smell. Previous research in paleobiology focused on measures of adaptation via developmental stability and resilience.
