Isabel Behncke

Isabel Behncke, UCL, MSc, Phil, PhD,
grew up in the Chilean mountains and has an integrated science training in behavior, ecology, complexity, and evolution. After more than three years and 3,000 km following wild bonobos in Congo, she turned to human primates. Her science quest is a voyage of exploration that takes us from the origin of all species, to the future of our own species. Isabel is a TED speaker and fellow, and communicator-at-large.
