Jeffrey received his BA in Archaeology from the University of Saskatchewan, and an MSc in Skeletal and Dental Bioarchaeology from University College London. He is interested in applying a biocultural approach, integrating social and critical theory into studies of health and disease. He hopes to examine patterns of early life stress and its effects on health over the life course in the context of cultural and political changes in Medieval Italian society, with particular reference to notions of eschatology, sex, and gender roles.
