"Paternal investment, testosterone levels, and body composition among rural Polish men" Louis Alvarado
The steroid hormone testosterone coordinates male reproductive function and behavior, and supports secondary sexual characteristics. However, life history trade-offs specific to human males, which take into account men’s provisioning and labor demands, may provide further insight into the relationship between testosterone and the human life course. Relationships between aging, testosterone, parental status, workload, and body composition were examined in men from a rural Polish village.
Louis Alvarado is Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Anthropology, with a secondary concentration in Integrative Biology. He is a Graduate Research Fellow with National Science Foundation, Fellow with the Program for Interdisciplinary Biological and Biomedical Sciences at University of New Mexico, Dissertation Fellow with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy, and Dissertation Fellow with the Ford Foundation. Louis studies the expression of men’s steroid physiology across the lifespan and its implication for men’s life history and health.
