Melanie MacEacheron Evolutionary Psychology

 

 

 

 

 

 

My current research focus is women's psychology as potential or actual mothers or allomothers, and sex differences in mateships and romantic relationships. Of particular interest to me, is our ability to creatively label or act on evolved desires in order to serve our evolutionary interests, even or especially where these are not consciously known to us, and to influence others.
 

My research methods include experimentation, quasi-experimentation, economic game-play, and surveying, as well as in-person, on-line, and large-scale archival research. I have also conducted comparative legal analysis to add context to psychological publications.
