Our lab focuses on how environmental conditions like parasites, pathogens, food availability, and social interactions impact human health. 

Taking an evolutionary life history perspective, we use field and laboratory studies to understand variation in human endocrine systems, and how this influences chronic health conditions like benign prostatic hyperplasia, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s dementia.
