Nancy Stevens is an integrative biologist exploring interactions between organisms and environments through time. She has conducted field research in over a dozen countries, documenting several discoveries new to science, including the oldest fossil evidence of the split between Old World monkeys and apes. Stevens investigates impacts of environmental change through deep time by exploring patterns of biogeography and extinction in the Cenozoic fossil record, particularly in the East African Rift, and she co-leads the Rukwa Rift Basin Project. Stevens also conducts field studies to explore links between form, function and extinction dynamics in modern animals in habitats that are rapidly changing due to anthropogenic and natural environmental change.
