Anna J. Ragni
Born and raised in Arkansas, I have always loved history and science. Anthropology was my calling, and after graduating from Hendrix College, I joined the Paleoanthropology lab at the University of Arkansas. My Master's work focused on the dental microwear textures of Brazilian monkeys and South African australopithecines. After graduating, I spent one year doing education and outreach for the Human Origins Program at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. I spent my year interacting with visitors, organizing teaching collections, and contributing to publicly accessible teaching resources. I am currently a comparative biology PhD student at the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History where I am focusing on postcranial functional morphology.
