Research interests


I study two aspects of fatherhood in my current project: how culture influences men’s investment in their children throughout childhood, and how the paternal patterns of investment and cultural ideals combine to affect men’s family’s health. For my research, I work with families of Mbendjele forest foragers and Bantu farmers in the northern Republic of the Congo.
