"An evolutionary perspective on maternal health and disease"
Amy Boddy will be talking about her research at this CEMinar. Her research focuses broadly on evolutionary applications to human health and disease. Her work is motivated by fundamental questions in life history theory. She uses a combination of genomics, comparative biology and evolutionary theory to help understand trade-offs between survival and reproduction across different levels of biological organization, from molecules to organisms and everything in between.
Dr Boddy is an assistant professor at University of California, Santa Barbara, Department of Anthropology.
