My research examines biocultural influences on growth, development, and reproduction. I conduct community health research with Indigenous Qom communities in Northeastern Argentina  (Co-Director, Chaco Area Reproductive Ecology Program), and am the Co-PI of the Biodemography Lab at UW's Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology, where I teach and conduct collaborative research on health and aging with populations in the U.S and globally. I have previously conducted research on infant feeding transitions and reproductive ecology with the Tsimane in Beni, Bolivia, and am an affiliate of the Tsimane Health and Life History Project
