I am a biological anthropologist specializing in in human variation and adaptation relative to disease and disparity in a changing environment. My basic science research is on olfactory evolution, behavior, genetics, and ecology. My applied research is on health disparities and sensory inequities created by climate change, environmental injustice, and pollution. I am a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks but currently on secondment to the Office of International Science and Engineering at the National Science Foundation.
