I am a biocultural medical anthropologist, psychological anthropologist, and human biologist. I teach and research child development, human biology & biocultural medical anthropology, and neuroanthropology. My primary scholarly interests revolve around interactions among the social and cultural architecture of everyday life, cognitive processes, and physiologic systems in human development and the production of differential well-being across the life course.
