Quantitative genetics of human life-history

Project Details

Description

Why do we age and why do some individuals age faster than others? To answer these fundamental questions, Euan is using human archival datasets (historical rural Finns and the Swiss canton of Glarus) in a quantitative genetics framework. In particular, he is interested in the life history trade-offs underlying senescence; the interaction of genetic and environmental factors on senescence patterns; and how these changed across the demographic transition.
