Dr. Michael Wasserman wants you to know that you are what you eat. As a researcher in the Department of Anthropology, he studies how hominid’s diets influence their behavior and change throughout the millennia. He looks at the diets of gorillas and how human interference is gradually beginning to change their behavior. He also examines human diets throughout our development and how a growing population is impacting what we eat.
