Sandra Martelli


After receiving my MSc in bioanthropology, early history and prehistory from the University of Zurich Switzerland, I came to UCL to study for my PhD in evolutionary anthropology, focussing on the evolution of the hominoid lumbar spine in relation to changes in locomotion from climbing to walking and running at the UCL Cell and developmental biology department. Following this, I accepted a position as postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Archaeology, working on Neanderthal hyoid and vocal tract anatomy. This project was associated with HANDTOMOUTH. I am currently working as anatomy teaching fellow for UCL life sciences and UCL medical school.
