About the author:
My research focuses broadly on social relationships, physiology, and health outcomes, including how those dynamics shape family well-being. Much of my work has focused on fathering and the biology of fatherhood and how they are expressed in different cultural and family contexts around the world.
What I want to achieve:
I am interested in helping to describe the diverse ways families around the world raise children and how we can support and respect a range of approaches to bringing up healthy children.
Awards & accomplishments:
2020 recipient of the Michael A. Little Early Career Award from the Human Biology Association
I direct the Hormones, Health, and Human Behavior Lab at UND.
