Lecturer (Teaching) in Evolutionary Anthropology, UCL

I am an evolutionary anthropologist, currently working as a Lecturer at UCL in the Anthropology department. My research currently fits within the field of human behavioural ecology, and I focus particularly on current variation in menopause timing from an evolutionary perspective, trying to answer questions like why does age of menopause vary across and within cultures? What trade-offs are associated with menopause timing? Is there an 'optimal' age of menopause? In general, I am also interested in life history theory, decisions relating to fertility, and the human sex ratio.
