Mark Collard is the Canada Research Chair in Human Evolutionary Studies and a Full Professor of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University (SFU). He is also director of the SFU Human Evolutionary Studies Program, and holds a part-time personal chair in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Aberdeen. Dr. Collard works on a number of topics in evolutionary anthropology. Among these are the identification of species in the hominin fossil record, the reconstruction of fossil hominin and non-human primate phylogenetic relationships, and the estimation of body mass, stature and age from skeletal material. In addition, he is using methods and theory from evolutionary biology to investigate archaeologically and ethnographically documented patterns of material culture variation.
