I am a behavioral ecologist and nutritional anthropologist
 and I work with the Hadza hunter-gatherers of Tanzania. 

My research explores the behavioral & nutritional correlates of:
* life history
* cooperative breeding
* children's foraging & food sharing
* the evolution of childhood
* the evolution of the human diet

I am an Associate Professor
 in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. 

I am currently looking for graduate students interested in the following research foci:

-  forager growth and development
-  childhood
-  political ecology
