Bio/Research

I am interested in the relevance of evolutionary and ecological theories to psychology. My more specific interests include comparative studies of social diversity among related animal species, sex differences, parent-offspring relations, lethal violence, and the evolutionary consequences of uncertain paternity in animals with internal fertilization.

I conduct research on both human and nonhuman behaviour, usually in collaboration with Margo Wilson. We do field and laboratory research on the behavioural ecology of desert rodents, and we do epidemiological studies of homicide, which we treat as a window on human passions and antagonisms and hence as a sort of assay of interpersonal conflict.
