Meave Leakey is a research professor in the Department of Anthropology, Stony Brook University, New York. She has carried out field work in the Turkana Basin over the past four decades and currently co-leads the Koobi Fora Research Project with her daughter Louise. She is an Explorer-in-Residence of the National Geographic Society, which has funded field work in East Africa for many decades and currently largely funds the KFRP field research at Turkana. Meave's research interests include the evolution of cercopithecids and hominids and the study of past faunal assemblages as proxies for reconstructing paleohabitats and past environmental changes. Together with Richard and Louise Leakey and in collaboration with Stony Brook University, Meave is developing the Turkana Basin Institute with two research facilities to the east and west of Lake Turkana.
