I am a PhD student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences part of the Anthropology department at UCSB. My research interests broadly encompass human behavioral ecology, life-history theory, and evolutionary medicine. My current research focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of late-life cognitive decline in a non-industrialized setting (Tsimane of Bolivia) with an evolutionary perspective. I earned two master’s degrees at the University of Toulouse : « Modelling of Ecological Systems », and « Ecology and Evolution », where I developed a strong interest in applying evolutionary concepts to human health studies.
