Dr Megan Arnot profile picture
  • Associate Lecturer (Teaching) in Evolutionary Anthropology
  • Dept of Anthropology
  • Faculty of S&HS
I am a Lecturer (Teaching) in Evolutionary Anthropology at UCL. I completed a PhD in Biological Anthropology at UCL in 2021, having previously completed an MSci in Human Sciences and Evolution also at UCL.
Research Summary
I am a human behavioural ecologist, with a particular interest in behaviours and traits that result in non-optimal fertility. My work so far has focussed on the menopause and post-reproductive lifespan in humans, and trying to understand whether the variation we see in symptoms, timing, and post-menopausal behaviour can be explained by an evolutionary framework. Broadly, I am interested in fertility, the application of life history theory to humans, and the impact of sex ratios on human behaviour.

  • ANTH0044 Human Behavioural Ecology
  • ANTH0038 Evolution and Human Behaviour
