RESEARCH AND TEACHING INTERESTS

My research explores kin and parental investment in studies of sociality and health in contemporary Caribbean populations. My current research on caretaking strategies, residential contexts, and child health outcomes contributes to a broad focus on the influences of social experiences on health outcomes over the lifespan. Future research will include a dual-sited research project investigating the long-term effects of social upheaval on kin investment practices and health outcomes amongst contemporary island and Caribbean Diaspora populations.

My course offerings reflect my research interests in human biology, and broad training in biological anthropology.
