J. Brett Smith

Ph.D. Student
With degrees in biology and philosophy from the University of Alabama, Brett worked for a decade as an aquatic biologist with the Geological Survey of Alabama. While working long but enjoyable hours in the field, Brett maintained an interest in personal health and kept abreast of major developments in the nascent field of Darwinian medicine, longing for a career in this exciting new discipline.
Brett is now a doctoral candidate at the State University of New York-Binghamton under the supervision of the well-known evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson, where he hopes to continue work in collaboration with the pioneering evolutionary gerontologist Michael Rose linking evolutionary mismatch to the aging process itself.
