SummaryAI Assisted Badge

Louise Leakey, a fourth-generation Kenyan palaeoanthropologist, has made significant contributions to the field of palaeoanthropology through her research in the Turkana Basin of Northern Kenya. She co-directs the Koobi Fora Research Project with her mother, Dr. Meave Leakey, continuing to explore the fossil-rich deposits at Lake Turkana from the last 4 million years. After completing her Ph.D. in Palaeontology, Biology at UCL, Louise is now an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Stony Brook in New York. She is also a founder member and a director of education and public outreach of the Turkana Basin Institute, a major centre for human origins research with two field stations in the desert of northern Kenya. Besides coordinating paleontological research in the Turkana Basin, Louise is working towards developing unique ways to explore the unique collections online through 3D models, in collaboration with Autodesk and the National Museums of Kenya. Louise is passionate about working with the local communities around Lake Turkana to increase funding for local schools and medical centres.
