Heather Dingwall, a double major in Biological Anthropology and Archaeology, has received a George Gamow Fellowship to study what ancient footprints tell about the origins of human gait. Prof. Brian Richmond is her advisor. Heather is looking forward to going to Kenya, where a team that included Dr. Richmond discovered 1.5-million-year-old hominin footprints at Ileret.
