Meagan Rubel

Research Interests:

I am broadly interested in the implications of how diet, subsistence practice, and environment are integrated with genetic variation, phenotypic adaptation, and health. My proposed PhD research will focus on gut microbiome and helminth analysis in African groups using human populations genetics and bioinformatics/statistical methods. https://publichealthatpenn.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/fieldwork-in-bosquet-cameroon/ http://www.med.upenn.edu/tishkoff/Lab/Rubel/rubel.html
