Abel Bosman trained as an osteoarcheologist at the University of Leiden, Netherlands and is currently a doctoral candidate at the DFG Center. His research interests focus on the application of virtual anthropology in the study of human evolution. As part of this master’s degree, he used geometric morphometrics to analyze differences in mandible form between human populations from Medieval and post-Medieval Netherlands. For his doctoral dissertation, he is reconstructing and analyzing Middle-Late Pleistocene hominin crania. His research interests are in hominin variation, the effect of masticatory stress on the cranium, and the possible influence of language on the anatomical variation of the vocal tract system.
