Research Summary

My research interests span behavioral ecology, demography, comparative life history and reproductive ecology, the evolution of juvenility, cooperative breeding, intergenerational transfers and the interaction between economic and demographic transitions. Each of my three field sites in small scale horticultural and hunter-gatherer societies include student involvement and opportunities for graduate students to pursue their own research projects.
