"Beyond the mother: evolutionary perspectives on cooperative childrearing"
Dr Abigail Page will be talking about her research at this CEMinar. Dr Page's research is focused on understanding the relationship between the environment (both social and natural) and behaviour, and ultimately how this influences health and wellbeing. Her background is in evolutionary approaches to human behaviour (in particular Human Behavioural Ecology), therefore her research seeks to test hypotheses developed from evolutionary theory and ultimately, to understand the function of any given behaviour. Her interests are also influenced by Evolutionary Medicine and Applied Evolutionary Anthropology and Demography.
Dr Page is employed as a Research Fellow on the Hunter-Gatherers Resilience Project and a Biological Anthropology Teaching Fellow, both at UCL.
