Portrait of Amanda Veile

I am a biological anthropologist, and my research broadly examines human birthing and breastfeeding behaviors and outcomes, and several epidemiologic factors that shape cross-cultural variation in child development. I currently maintain field research projects in Mexico and Peru. I am an Assistant Professor of Biological Anthropology, the Director of LABOR (Laboratory for Behavior, Ontogeny and Reproduction), a faculty associate at the Center on Aging and the Life Course (CALC), an executive board member of the Ingestive Behavior Research Center (IBRC), and hold a courtesy faculty appointment in the Department of Public Health at Purdue University. I am also an Assistant Editor at Birth, a peer-reviewed obstetrics and gynecology journal.
