Rob DeSalle works in molecular systematics, microbial evolution, and genomics at the American Museum of Natural History. His current research focuses on large-scale genomics problems using phylogenetic systematic approaches in the framework of the tree-of-life. He has curated several major exhibitions at the AMNH, including one currently running to 2019, called Our Senses: An Immersive Experience.

Ian Tattersall is a paleoanthropologist and Curator Emeritus at the American Museum of Natural History, whose recent research has centered on the origins of human cognition. Currently, his major research focus is on how modern humans acquired a unique style of thinking, and how we managed to dominate the planet while other human species went extinct. He is the author of many books, among them A Natural History of Wine (with Rob DeSalle) and Masters of the Planet.

Victoria Anstead uses the power of art and culture to connect people to places around the world. From years as an art curator and advisor weaving together the personal narratives of collectors with the sagas contained in the history of art, she knows firsthand the power of story. She works with leading thinkers and creators in the arts, science, technology and design to conceive and produce narrative through exhibitions, film, publications and travel agendas that connect people both to the natural world and the exploding urban areas. Working with some of the world’s top architecture firms she advises on the art and cultural elements of master plans for new and reimagined places around the globe. Victoria holds a MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and has worked in international investment banking.
