  • About Me

    Assistant Professor

    Department of Anthropology, University of Washington

    My research examines biocultural influences on growth, development, and reproduction. I work with two ongoing studies of indigenous health across the life course: the Chaco Area Reproductive Ecology Program (Co-PI) and the Tsimane Health and Life History Project (Affiliate). Recent research topics include: the influence of birth mode, breastfeeding, and complementary feeding on infant health, growth, and maternal reproductive outcomes; infant microbial development; female growth and hormonal transitions during puberty; community based participatory research.
