Dr. Corley joined our lab as a Postdoctoral Associate in June of 2017. She is broadly interested in reproductive ecology of humans and non-human primates. In particular, she is working on how hormones, health, and behavior influence one another, and how the interactions among these are informed by social and other environmental factors. Maggie is currently working on the endocrine correlates of life history transitions in Qom girls and women. Website
Kendall is interested in understanding the developmental and evolutionary origins of human obesity. She is currently analyzing data of her doctoral dissertation on the developmental origin of adipose tissue in Samoan infants.
Overall research interests: human behavior and cultural variation in evolutionary perspective, evolutionary medicine, reproductive endocrinology, the effect of nutritional transitions on gene by environment interaction. Website
Carlye is a graduate student in Biological Anthropology at Yale. She is interested in the ways that social, cultural and environmental changes affect human reproductive biology. Specifically, she is looking at the effect that endocrine disruptors have on infant development via breastmilk. Carlye is woriking with Qom communities in the province of Formosa, Argentina.
Sol is a doctoral student from the Universidad Nacional del Nordeste, in Corrientes, Argentina. She is currently writing her dissertation on the correlates of juvenile development in black and gold howler monkeys (Alouatta caraya).
Sofía is a doctoral student in the School of Health Sciences of the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina. She is studying the social and biological correlates of childhood obesity in Qom children from a peri-urban population.
Kat is a doctoral student in Biologial Anthropology at Yale. She is interested in how social and ecological environment shapes the evolution of human physiology. Her research pursuits include reproductive ecology, endocrinology and evolutionary medicine.
