RESEARCH INTERESTS

I research how economic development and environmental change alters parasite exposure and intestinal microbial diversity and how this change contributes to dysregulation in immune function and the development of autoimmune disorders and allergies. I am interested in integrating technologies from microbiology, genetics, and anthropology in order to understand the coevolutionary roles that bacterial diversity and helminth exposure play in regulating human immune function. Other research interests include Evolutionary Medicine, climatic adaptation, human coevolutionary relationships with infectious diseases, cardiovascular and metabolic health, psychosocial stress, skeletal biology and physical activity.

ONGOING RESEARCH PROJECTS

Shuar Health and Life History Project, Morona-Santiago, Ecuador (2008-Present): Research in collaboration with project directors Larry Sugiyama and Josh Snodgrass, including five field seasons in Ecuador (http://www.bonesandbehavior.org/shuar/). I collect stool samples, blood spots, and anthropometrics to understand how parasite load and bacterial diversity is altered by social and economic change associated with rapid integration into market economies. I explore how this change in infectious disease burden alters immune function and may result in the development of allergy and autoimmunity.

Metabolic Adaptation and Health Change among Indigenous Siberians (2008-Present): Research in collaboration with project directors William Leonard and Josh Snodgrass (http://www.bonesandbehavior.org/siberia.html). I explore how climatic adaptation to circumpolar regions, coupled with social and economic change, are resulting in changes to thyroid function and the ultimate development of autoimmune thyroid disorders.

WHO Study on global AGEing and adult health (SAGE; 2011-Present): India accelerometry and physical activity substudy. Data extraction, organization, and analysis of accelerometry/physical activity (Actigraph GT3x) data 200 older adults in India (http://www.bonesandbehavior.org/sage/).

Bones and Behavior Working Group (2008-Present): Organized text and contributed photographs for the Bones and Behavior integrative measurement protocol (http://www.bonesandbehavior.org).
