Robert Tennyson

Roles

Mr. Tennyson is a Ph.D. student in Biological Anthropology working in the Eisenberg Anthropological Genetics Laboratory. His dissertation investigates how physical activity moderates the impacts of psychosocial stress on immunological function and aging in a targeted sample of intercollegiate athletes and non-athlete college students. He aims to understand better how these impacts may have occurred throughout human evolution, their relevance for his study populations (e.g., student-athletes and injury prevention), and their relevance for population health more broadly.
