She is a co-PI in the Chaco Area Reproductive Ecology Project (Argentina) and an affiliate of the Tsimane Health and Life History Project (Bolivia). She will join the faculty of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington, Seattle, in the Fall of 2018. Website
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 collecting data of her doctoral dissertation in Samoa, weighing and measuring beautiful newborns and infants and inteviewing their mothers.
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 first year graduate student in Biological Anthropology at Yale. She is interested in the ways that social change affects indigenous health as shown through immunology and reproductive biology. I am particularly interested in the cultural changes influencing the usage of traditional medicine in the Andean region as well as the impacts of medical pluralism on health.
