Recent Interviews with CEB Faculty

A few CEB faculty were recently interviewed about their work. 

Lance Grande, distinguished service curator at The Field Museum and CEB faculty member, recently sat down with the BBC to discuss his research and his new book “The Lost World of Fossil Lake: Snapshots from Deep Time.”

Robert Martin, A. Watson Armour III Curator of Biological Anthropology at the Field Museum in Chicago, as well as a member CEB, answered some questions on childbirth for CNN Health. Robert’s book How We Do It: The Evolution and Future of Human Reproduction, was released this June.

Janet Voight, also a curator at the Field Museum and CEB faculty member, was recently interviewed on The Brain Scoop, where, as host Emily Graslie writes, “Dr. Janet Voight settles the eternal debate about the plural form of "octopus," and becomes my new favorite person.”

Lastly, CEB Chair Michael Coates was interviewed by, with his former student Lauren Sallan, for their work identifying that Fouldenia, a species of fish that lived 348 million years ago, is the earliest known shell-crushing, ray-finned fish.
