It's been a few years since I last attended the annual conference for the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. But this time around, in a couple of weeks I am off to New Orleans for this annual meeting!
The AAPA conference is one of the biggest meetings of researchers and professionals conducting research on human biology, the human skeleton, human and primate teeth, the biology and behaviour of our primate cousins and the genetics of people today and in the past.
You can find out more about the AAPA here: http://www.physanth.org
It's a great chance to catch up on both current research and with some friends from across the world.
AND, this year I have been lucky enough to be given a podium (!) presentation slot to present a little slice of my PhD research - exciting times!
So for now, back to preppin' my talk and my bags!
