I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University in the Comparative Lactation Lab. I am interested in the immunological functions of human breast milk, the development of the immune system in diverse environments, and evolutionary medicine.

My current research focuses on how variation in the maternal environment affects immune factors present in breast milk. My dissertation work is based on field studies conducted at the Mogielica Human Ecology Study Site in rural Poland and in the Boston area.
