Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • World War II
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Demography, Child development, Human life, Socioeconomic status and Anthropometry. He undertakes multidisciplinary investigations into Demography and Body proportions in his work. The concepts of his Child development study are interwoven with issues in Juvenile and Human ecology.

His Socioeconomic status research includes themes of Latin Americans and Body size. His Anthropometry research incorporates themes from Rural environment and School age child. The various areas that he examines in his Glossary study include Variation, Ecology and Social science.

His most cited work include:

  • Patterns of human growth (774 citations)
  • Homo naledi, a new species of the genus Homo from the Dinaledi Chamber, South Africa (394 citations)
  • Evolution of the human life cycle (234 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Socioeconomic status, Anthropometry, Malnutrition and Gerontology. Barry Bogin has researched Demography in several fields, including Body mass index, Overweight, Obesity, Maya and Ethnic group. His work deals with themes such as Femur, Tibia and Short stature, which intersect with Overweight.

His Obesity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Developing country and Time preference. In his work, Life history is strongly intertwined with Developmental psychology, which is a subfield of Socioeconomic status. His Malnutrition study incorporates themes from Psychological intervention, Poverty, Nutritional status and Environmental health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (46.67%)
  • Socioeconomic status (17.62%)
  • Anthropometry (15.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Demography (46.67%)
  • Malnutrition (11.90%)
  • Socioeconomic status (17.62%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Demography, Malnutrition, Socioeconomic status, Anthropometry and Nutritional status. His work in the fields of Demography, such as Secular variation, overlaps with other areas such as Sample size determination. His Malnutrition research includes themes of Psychological intervention, Skinfold thickness, Gerontology and Environmental health.

His Socioeconomic status research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Developmental psychology, Life course approach and Association. The Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Cohort and Social group. He works mostly in the field of Birth weight, limiting it down to topics relating to Caesarean section and, in certain cases, Waist, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global effects of income and income inequality on adult height and sexual dimorphism in height (22 citations)
  • Stunting, starvation and refeeding: a review of forgotten 19th and early 20th century literature. (19 citations)
  • Interventions to tackle malnutrition and its risk factors in children living in slums: a scoping review (19 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • World War II
  • Ecology

Barry Bogin spends much of his time researching Demography, Malnutrition, Perspective, Psychological intervention and Adult height. Barry Bogin connects Demography with Social inequality in his study. The various areas that he examines in his Malnutrition study include Psychosocial, Skinfold thickness, Overweight and Nutritional status.

His study in Psychological intervention is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Intervention, Focus group, Pediatrics and Gerontology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Skeletal maturation, Human evolution, Anatomy and Life history theory. His Young adult study combines topics in areas such as Minimum number of individuals and Homo naledi.
