Biography

I am a graduate student with an interest in biocultural anthropology. Specifically, I’d like to have a greater understanding of what shapes human behavior within particular ecological and cultural contexts. My advisor is Dr. Peter Gray, and I am currently a member of the evolution and human behavior lab. At the moment I am doing research on the topic of female mating behavior in mate scarce environments in Jamaica. I’ve also participated in some research regarding education attainment in India. I also have an interest in public health in regard to human psychological and physical development.
