Meagan Allen Medieval Medicine: I am interested in the origin and transmission routes of pandemics and panzootics in the early medieval period, as well as how  physicians and writers of the Byzantine Empire understood their origins, transmission, and the medical properties of the treatments used to cure them. I am also interested in the boundary between religion and medicine in treatment.

My core research projects are in philosophy of biology/paleobiology. Specifically, I am interested in conceptual and empirical issues related to the inference of behavior from the fossil record (using morphometrics and foraging models) and, generally, in the influence of behavior on morphology and vice versa. Additionally, I am of the view that historians and philosophers can play a positive role in the direct construction and evaluation of scientific models.
