This is the first of a series of episodes highlighting the work and interests of the Sausage of Science team. First up is our associate producer, Dr. Theresa Gildner. Theresa is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Dartmouth College and will be starting a new position as an Assistant Professor in the Anthropology Department at Washington University in St, Louis in January. She chats with Cara and Chris about her work with the Shuar Health and Life History Project and about her recent paper on the potential roles of parasite infections in mitigating the effects of COVID.
