Evolutionary Psychology definition:

"... the study of the phylogenetic history and adaptive functions of the mind ..."

     --S. Pinker, The Blank Slate

​My current research focus is women's psychology as potential or actual mothers or allomothers, and sex differences in mateships. 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.
