BIOGRAPHY

Kristin Snopkowski received her PhD from the University of New Mexico, with a focus on human behavioral ecology.  For her dissertation, she conducted fieldwork in Bolivia interviewing women about their reproductive histories to understand how they made reproductive decisions.  Dr. Snopkowski worked at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as a post-doctoral research fellow examining the effect of kin availability on reproductive decisions among women in Thailand and Indonesia.  Her current work explores the evolution of reproductive decision-making, sexual conflict, intergenerational cooperation and conflict, and the evolution of menopause.
