Congratulations to the Spring 2016 TBI Field School Graduates

|Congratulations to the Spring 2016 TBI Field School Graduates

Finally we bring the Spring 2016 TBI Field School to a close. The students have learned and accomplished so much during these 10 weeks. More importantly, they’ve made friends and memories that will surely last a lifetime. The students have gained a huge breadth of knowledge through many hours of studying, researching, hiking and exploring. The professors, Linda Martin and I are all so proud of the hard work the students put in during all of the modules. We had a blast with you and wish you all the best in whatever the future has in store. We hope that this experience will stay with you throughout your lives, providing you with many different skills. Most importantly, be proud of yourselves for this amazing accomplishment!

About the Author:

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Stony Brook University, NY and have the pleasure of being the Resident Academic Director of the TBI Origins field school for Spring 2017. I study Early Pleistocene stone tool technology, and have been conducting research in Turkana since 2012. My dissertation research uses an experimental approach investigating when and how human ancestors started creating patterned shapes in their stone tools (< 2 million years ago).
