EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN FAMILY

WE STUDY THE EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN FAMILY, IN ALL ITS DIVERSITY, FROM FEMALE-CENTERED TO MALE-CENTERED, AND FROM SMALL TO LARGE. WE WANT TO UNDERSTAND HOW DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS GIVE RISE TO DIFFERENT FAMILY SYSTEMS AND HOW FAMILY SYSTEMS HAVE EVOLVED OVER TIME.

EVOLUTIONARY DEMOGRAPHY

WE STUDY HOW EVOLUTION SHAPES EVERY STAGE OF THE HUMAN LIFE HISTORY, FROM CONCEPTION TO DEATH. EVOLUTIONARY INSIGHTS PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR UNDERSTANDING THE CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF DIVERSITY IN DEMOGRAPHIC BEHAVIOR, INCLUDING FERTILITY, MARRIAGE, SEX RATIOS, MORBIDITY,  MORTALITY, AND MIGRATION.
