Human Evolution Interest

My research focuses on pediatric body composition and energy metabolism, which has involved pioneering and refining a variety of techniques for measuring energy expenditure, body composition and breast-milk intake in younger ages. I also work extensively on evolutionary theory, addressing the association between developmental plasticity and health.
