Mackie O'Hara

Congratulations to Mackie O’Hara, recipient of a Presidential Fellowship in Autumn 2019. Mackie is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology, and is one of eleven graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences who received the fellowship. This fellowship is the most prestigious award given by the Graduate School, and provides one year of full-time financial support for students in their final year of dissertation work.

Mackie, advised by Dr. Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg, is

“evaluating the evolutionary relationship between dental morphology, enamel thickness  and dietary adaptations across primates through the framework of Homo naledi, an ancient human ancestor only known from recent fossil discoveries.”
