PTSD, life history theory, evolutionary medicine, developmental neuroscience
PTSD vulnerability and resilience is influenced by one's developmental experiences. My research uses an evolutionary lens to investigate the role of early adversity in shaping the neurophysiology of the stress response system. Early life cues of harshness and unpredictability may affect traumatic coping capacity in adulthood.
