I study the evolved psychology of cooperation, and how humans’ evolutionary history of cooperation has shaped our social psychology more broadly. Specifically, I work on how people choose their cooperative partners, and how we divide the costs and benefits that arise in cooperative relationships. This work has implications for several areas of social psychology, such as social perception and moral psychology. In my graduate work, I also investigated the role of hormones in human mating behavior. I received my PhD in Evolutionary Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2017. My work in the EPL has been supported by the Harvard Mind Brain Behavior and Foundations of Human Behavior Interfaculty Initiatives.
