In 2013, Elliot received his Bachelor of Arts degree in evolutionary anthropology and minor in psychology at the University of New Mexico. His current research interests include modern human origins and the biocultural adaptations of archaic hominins utilizing methods from bio-archaeology. The interaction between osteology, biology, culture, society, physical geography and what these interactions can reveal about modern human evolution and variation consumes his graduate studies.
In Elliot's free time, he is a photographer, musician, and artist. He enjoys talking about cars, animals, a good brew, spicy food, fly fishing, traveling to national parks, and any outdoor activity. The outdoors furthered his love of camping, hiking, backpacking, climbing, backcountry snowboarding, and mountain biking. Frequently, he uses these activities to reach remote wilderness and climbs/rides the mountains ranging from New Mexico to Canada.
