Annabelle-Louise Lockey completed a BSc in Biological Anthropology at the University of Kent. In this period she undertook a year aboard at the University of Calgary to study, moreover working in a palaeoenvirnoment lab extracting phytolith remains from Middle Pleistocene deposits at Olduvai gorge. During her Bachlor thesis she developed an interest in hominoid dentition, this continued in her MSc Palaeoanthropology and Palaearchaeology at Univerity College London. Within both degrees she utilized high resolution micro-CT scans to analyse the shape of and internal structures of dental remains. Her research has involved Pliocene hominins from Africa, as well as Middle Plesitocene hominins from Sima de los Huesos and Boxgrove, with additional experience analysing Homo neanderthalensis, Homo naledi and recent Homo spaiens. Her research interests center around primate dental evolution in relation to variation, ontogeny and functional wear, specifically within the hominin lineage. In March 2018 Annabelle-louise Lockey began her position as a doctoral candidate under the supervision of Dr. Sireen El Zaatari at the University of Tübingen. For her doctoral dissertation she is exploring micro wear and hypoplasia on the dental remains of juveniles in Homo from Eurasia.
