About Carole Hooven

Carole Hooven co-directs the undergraduate program in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. She has received numerous teaching awards, and her Hormones and Behavior class was named one of the Harvard Crimson's "top ten tried and true".

Carole became interested in testosterone when she spent 8 months in Uganda studying chimpanzees. She was impressed by the differences in the behaviour of the males and females, and how it paralleled sex differences in human behaviour in many important ways. She loves watching birds, running and biking, Belgian beer, salty snacks and freedom of speech.
