Research summary

I'm an evolutionary theorist interested in human sociality and societal organisation. I investigate how these emerge from patterns of conflict & cooperation and how they vary with ecological conditions. In the pursuit of this interest, I have focused especially on warfare and its impact on altruism, the development of complex societies and human health. To tackle these questions, I develop novel theory and apply existing modelling frameworks in evolutionary biology, evolutionary anthropology and beyond.
