Jonathan R Goodman

PhD Candidate, Human Evolutionary Studies, University of Cambridge

I am an interdisciplinary doctoral student at the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies interested in signalling systems, behaviour, and health. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a postgraduate researcher in evolutionary biology at City University of New York, and more recently completed a fellowship at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London, funded by the ESRC, where I applied some elements of my research to the public health sphere. During my PhD, I have been involved with the launch of Cambridge Public Health, an interdisciplinary research centre focused on major problems in global and public health. My health- and biology-related writings have appeared in New Scientist, The Guardian, Scientific American, and Aeon magazine, as well as the BMJ and the Lancet Digital Health.
