Tim D. White

Biography

Tim D. White is a professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his Ph.D. in physical anthropology from the University of Michigan. In 1974 he worked with Richard Leakey's team on the Australopithecus afarensis fossil known as Lucy. In 1994, he discovered what was then the oldest known human ancestor, a 4.4 million-year-old Ardipithecus ramidus, an almost complete fossilized female skeleton known as "Ardi." In 1996 he was part of a team that discovered fossils of a 2.5 million-year-old species Australopithecus garhi, which is thought to predate Homo habilis tool use and manufacturing by 100,000 to 600,000 years.
