Dr. Todd Disotell is an Anthropology professor at New York University and he studies primate and human evolution. He is also a Molecular Primatologist who uses DNA to study the evolution of Homo sapiens and other primates.

For over 20 years he has specialized in generating and testing hypotheses about primate phylogeny. While the majority of his research spans all of the groups of Old World monkeys, he has also worked on apes, New World monkeys, and stepsirrhines. His research group has generated many of the complete mitochondrial genomes that figure prominently in debates about phylogeny and taxonomy.

Disotell's research interests range from Molecular Evolution, Mammalian Evolution, Molecular Systematics, Phylogentic Analysis, Population Genetics, Phylogeography, Bioinformatics, Human Evolution, Human Variation and the history of Anthropology. He also specializes in Cryptozoological primates such as Bigfoot.

He has appeared on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, National Geographic Channel's Naked Science and Is It Real?, and History Channel's Monster Quest.
