Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg


Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg is Professor of Biological Anthropology at The Ohio State University. In her research, she uses teeth to answer questions about life history profiles, growth, and biological relationships in primates and fossil hominins.

She has research interests in fossil hominin, extant non-human primate, and modern human dental growth and development in relation to the evolution of life history, dietary reconstruction, and variation in dental morphology. Prof. Guatelli-Steinberg has worked on such questions in non-human primates, Plio-Pleistocene hominins, Neandertals, and modern humans. She is also interested in a variety of other subjects including dental sexual dimorphism, fluctuating asymmetry, and dental morphology.
