About

Ethan Fulwood, PhD

I grew up in East Tennessee in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. I studied Anthropology and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, where I completed an undergraduate thesis on metric variation in the skeletons of strepsirrhine primates and tarsiers and worked summers at the Gray Fossil Site near Johnson City, Tennessee. Hoping to work on fossil primates, I moved to the Boyer Lab in the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University, where I completed my PhD, ultimately on dental and dietary evolution in lemurs. I taught gross anatomy as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Neuroscience at the Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine and I am now Assistant Professor of Anatomy at the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine.
