Human Evolution Interest

I am interested in the evolution of cooperation in nature. Although individuals are expected to benefit from selfish behaviour; cooperation is not only commonplace in nature, but is of profound evolutionary and social significance, being responsible for most of the major evolutionary transitions. In particular, I aim to elucidate the mechanisms that maintain cooperation in interactions where partners may otherwise be tempted to exploit one another.
