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.

Graduate Student Fellow

I am a PhD student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences part of the Anthropology department at UCSB. I have broad interests in evolutionary medicine, life-history theory, pathogen-host interactions, and population genetics. My current work is focused on looking at telomere dynamics through a life-history framework to better understand how continuous or chronic infection can affect aging of the immune system, and how this “immune aging” can contribute to future susceptibility to infection and overall health status. I earned my B.A in Biological Anthropology with a minor in Psychology from Boston University, where I first became interested in the complex interactions between our biology, our adaptations, and the environment.

Graduate Student Fellow

I am a PhD student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences program at UC Santa Barbara. My interests include biocultural evolution, cooperation and conflict across systems, and especially the field of evolutionary medicine, with a focus on cancer and microchimerism.
I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Oriental Studies from the University of Rome “Sapienza”, and a master’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Milan "Bicocca". After graduating, I started collaborating with the Cancer and Evolution lab at Arizona State University, and with the Cooperation Science Network, an interdisciplinary research group founded by Arizona State University and Rutgers University.

Graduate Student Fellow

I am a graduate student in the Integrate Anthropological Sciences. I study the behavioral ecology of primates. My research interests include social variation within and across populations, behavioral syndromes and their roles in group dynamics, and the coevolution of vocal communication and sociality. 

I earned a B.S. in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology and a B.S. in Evolutionary Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, where I studied the behavioral syndromes and movement ecology of several species of lizards. I have also contributed to a number of projects by studying the demography of vulnerable species to better inform conservation efforts.
