Heather Shattuck-Heidorn
Heather Shattuck-Heidorn is a biological anthropologist who works at the intersections of public health, gender theory, and human biology. She uses gender theory to motivate hypothesis-based research examining how our social lives become embodied, reflected in our hormones, immune function, and other biology. Current projects include utilizing large datasets to recover the effects of gender on aspects of immune function, and a community-based research project investigating how gendered experiences influence stress and allostatic load in adolescents.
