We study how biology, technology and culture shape the health of children and their families

Using interdisciplinary perspective from evolutionary, biological, quantitative, and health psychology we study questions like...

  • How does breastfeeding change the psychology and biology of mothers and their children? 

  • There have been dramatic changes to the way we feed, parent, and interact with children over the last 100 years. How will these changes impact maternal-child health?

  • How can we use technology and other aspects of modern society to help improve the health of children and families?
