2005 Distinguished Guest Lecturer: Mark Flinn, PhD
Dr. Flinn is Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, University of Missouri and visiting associate professor, Department of Psychological Sciences 2004-2006. His research interests span evolutionary human biology, child health and psychological development, family environment, glucocorticoid stress response, life history, integration of biological, psychological, and ethnographic methods.
