My name is Erik Gjesfjeld and I am a Program Officer in Human Sciences at the John Templeton Foundation.
Previously, I served as a Renfrew Fellow at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research and a Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College, both associated with the University of Cambridge. Prior to this, I was a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Institute for Society and Genetics and a Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles. I received my PhD from the University of Washington, my MA degrees from University College London, and my BA from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.
