Robin Nelson

Robin Nelson is a biological anthropologist and assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Skidmore College. Her research explores how contemporary Caribbean populations living in urban spaces navigate social and biological kin relationships, and how these networks correlate to variability in growth in children, and overall health status in adults. Her latest research will investigate these dynamics in parent-child dyads in Diaspora Caribbean populations living in Canada. She utilizes mixed methods to better understand how humans understand and make use of these essential relationships.
