Biography

Dr. Ana Magdalena Hurtado is Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, and faculty in the Center for Evolution & Medicine at Arizona State University. She has a secondary appointment at the Centro para el Desarrollo de la Investigación Científica, Asunción, Paraguay. In 1991, with funding from William T Grant career, she completed career development training in epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of Michigan under the supervision of Sherman James. After five years of postdoctoral fieldwork, and faculty appointments at Emory University and the University of New Mexico, Hurtado moved to ASU to help build the first evolutionary anthropology-based Global Health program. In 2012, Hurtado was inducted as Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She works on mortality reduction mechanisms in humans with emphasis on cultural niche construction and innate immunity. This work builds on decades of research on sexual, reproductive status divisions of labor, cooperative breeding, foraging efficiency, diet, time allocation and development, menopause, human life history, and disease phenotypes – helminthiasis, tuberculosis, asthma, depression and metabolic syndrome.
