The Leakey Foundation says
Anne Stone is Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at the Arizona State University. Her specialization and main area of interest is anthropological genetics. Currently, her research focuses on population history and understanding how humans and the great apes have adapted to their environments, including their disease and dietary environments. This has three main strands: (a) Native American population history, (b) the evolutionary history of the great apes, and (c) understanding the co-evolutionary history of mycobacteria (specifically Mycobacterium tuberculosis and M. leprae, the causative agents of tuberculosis and leprosy, respectively) with human and non-human primates. Stone obtained her Ph.D. in anthropology in 1996 from the Pennsylvania State University. She has been a Fulbright Fellow (1992-93), an NIH NRSA fellow, and a Kavli Scholar (2007). In 2011 she was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and in 2015 she joined the Scientific Executive Committee of The Leakey Foundation. She has served on the editorial boards of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology and the Journal of Human Evolution and currently serves as a senior editor of Molecular Biology and Evolution.
