About Maggie

I am a biomedical anthropologist and current biological anthropology PhD student at Binghamton University. I plan to focus my dissertation utilizing evolutionary hypotheses to investigate nutritional quality of breast milk with regards to maternal health, behavior, and local environment among mothers in NY and Mt. Kilimanjaro, TZ. I am very passionate on conducting research focused on women's health, reproductive ecology, human evolutionary biology, Darwinian medicine, and public health.
