Corinna Most is a faculty member in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology at Iowa State University. She is also the co-Director of the Uaso Ngiro Baboon Project, in Kenya. She received her Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology with a specialization in Anthropogeny from the University of California San Diego in 2018, under the mentorship of Dr. Shirley Strum. Dr. Most's research program involves two main lines of investigation: 1) the ontogeny of social competence in wild olive baboons (Papio anubis), and 2) the long-term effects of ecological changes on wild olive baboons’ behavior and reproductive parameters. More broadly, she is interested in the origins, evolution, and development of social cognition, and her approach is interdisciplinary, combining theories and methods from anthropology, developmental and comparative psychology, and cognitive sciences. Dr. Most's research provides insights into how our social nature, one of the defining traits of our species and indeed our order, arises both phylogenetically and ontogenetically.
