I am a Research Professor in Palaeoanthropology at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg South Africa where I have lived since 1989 and an Explorer in Residence for the National Geographic Society. I grew up in Georgia in the United States. I am a strong supporter of open access to scientific data and I have written on this topic. I have been writing and editing for Wikipedia since 2007 and have started numerous articles - largely based on my own research or expeditions I have undertaken. I am also attempting to contribute my wildlife photos to appropriate articles.
