- Evolutionary psychology
- Sexual selection
- Mate preferences
- Mating tactics and strategies
Research InterestsI am broadly interested in the process of sexual selection and in a variety of topics that typically fall within its purview, including mating systems, sexual conflict, direct and indirect sexual competition, mating strategies, mating effort allocation and mechanisms of mate preference and choice. I am also interested in social consequences of human mate choice, with the prediction that such consequences may prove to be important in regulating the strength and nature of choice, and in developing predictive models of human mate preference and mating tactics.
