My research focuses on human biology and health from an evolutionary and ecological perspective. Many of my questions focus on how the immune system relates to the contexts of our lives, such as our energy resources, the early life environment, current nutritional patterns, and aspects of the social environment including stress and discrimination. I also work to understand how gendered factors, an important aspect of society, relate to human health and well-being broadly.
