An-Di Yim is an Assistant Professor of Anatomy at Truman State University. In addition to being an anatomist, he is also a biological and forensic anthropologist. An-Di received his Ph.D. in Anthropology from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on applying quantitative genetics methods to study morphological variation in the human body. Populations differ in their body proportions around the world, and these differences occur very early in life. He studies how growth patterns morphological variation in limb elements, and how different evolutionary forces influence that process.
