This is my second year working in the Evo-Health lab. I spent the summer of 2014 working on an encyclopedia chapter outlining an evolutionary explanation for phobias, and a meta-analysis concerned with the effects of antidepressants on all-cause mortality. This fall I continue to work on the meta-analysis and involve myself in other projects whenever possible. My primary research interest includes both regular and clinical-level anxiety, examined from an evolutionary perspective. I hope to pursue graduate work in this area, using the knowledge and perspective I have gained from working with Paul Andrews and other members of the Evo-Health lab.
