Demographer and anthropologist, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

I’m a demographer, anthropologist and human behavioural ecologist, and use an interdisciplinary approach to understand human behaviour, incorporating an evolutionary theoretical framework into my research. I’m keen to promote a greater understanding of evolutionary explanations for human behaviour in the social and health sciences, and to facilitate interdisciplinary work more broadly. I work on questions of demographic and public health interest, including fertility and reproductive development, child health and mortality, and health inequalities; and I have a particular interest in the family, and how family relationships influence these outcomes.
