    Dr. Hoppa is an active researcher and graduate advisor in the field of biological anthropology. His research focuses on growth and development, and palaeodemogaphy in past society and seeks to answer questions regarding the relationship between health and mortality and changing social, economic and cultural conditions in the past. His training is strongly anchored in the biocultural tradition that recognizes the complex interactions of biological and social factors related to health and disease in populations.
