The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship

Cynthia Beall

Dr. Cynthia Beall (Distinguished University Professor, Anthropology) focuses her research on the adaptation of indigenous highlanders (Andean, Tibetan and East African) to the low levels of oxygen where they live at altitudes above 10,000 feet. Her Freedman Fellow project set out to design and implement a database of the biological characteristics of people living in these high altitudes.
