Dr. Nina Jablonski “Skin Pigmentation is Relevant to Everything that Physical Anthropologists Aspire to Do”
Nina G. Jablonski is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at The Pennsylvania State University. Her research program is focused in two major areas. Her paleoanthropological research concerns the evolutionary history of Old World monkeys, and currently includes an active field project in China. Her research on the evolution of human adaptations to the environment centers on the evolution of human skin and skin pigmentation, and includes an active field project examining the relationship between skin pigmentation and vitamin D production.
