Julie Wieczkowski, a physical anthropologist, joined the Anthropology Department in fall 2008. Wieczkowski’s teaching responsibilities include Human Origins, Primate Behavior, the Human Skeleton, and Forensic Anthropology. She also hopes to offer a primatological field methods course soon. Dr. Wieczkowski’s research interests are in primate ecology and conservation. She has conducted research on the Tana River mangabey (Cercocebus galeritus), an endangered monkey found only in Kenya, since 1998. The Tana River mangabey is a critically endangered monkey found in fragmented forests in Kenya; as such, Wieczkowski studies the mangabey’s responses to habitat change. She also investigates the mangabey’s diet of seeds, through both anatomical and behavioral studies.
Wieczkowski co-directs a primatological field school in Kenya (through the auspices of Rutgers University).
