The Galapagos is a unique environment for those studying biology or evolution. However, from the human health point of view, the Archipelago presents challenges. For example, Galapagos has a higher rate of overweight and obesity than the rest of Ecuador, and the accessibility to potable water varies across islands. Dr. Teran is interested in examining nutrition, infectious and metabolic diseases, pregnancy, and mental health on the islands.
