Katherine           Manley-Buser, Ph.D.
 

Welcome to my website.  Let me introduce myself.  My name is Katie Manley-Buser.  I currently teach anatomy (and occasionally, anthropology) at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.  I have a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, specializing in Physical (aka, Biological) Anthropology.  My dissertation looked at the growth and development of the foot bones in humans and the great apes (i.e., gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans).

For those of you who are not Palmer students, Davenport is located on the Iowa-Illinois border, right on the Mississippi River (at the only spot where the Mississippi runs east to west, so I'm told).  As you may have guessed, I am not a native to the MidWest, but grew up in South Florida (these Iowa winters have been a real eye-opener!!).  I went to school in Arizona and California and have taught in California, North Carolina, and Virginia, before moving to Iowa in 1995 (I miss the ocean greatly, although I recently discovered Lake Michigan to be a close substitute).

Outside of academic interests in anatomy and anthropology, I like to spend my spare time reading, mainly science fiction and mysteries.  My family and I  have recently become avid fans of Japanese animation (i.e., animé).  If this is something you're not familiar with and you like animation, I strongly recommend you check this out (a good place to start is the recently released Tokyo Godfathers, Miyazaki's Spirited Away, or The Animatrix, a compilation of nine short pieces based in the universe of The Matrix).
