Research Interests

I’m an Anthropologist/Psychologist with a broad interest in social hierarchy and social relationships. Taking an interdisciplinary perspective, I assess how perceptions of certain trait profiles and dispositions impact an individual’s position within groups, and the structure of such groups, over time. In an effort to answer questions related to these topics I’ve developed a deep and unholy love for social networks. My research thus far has seen me work with data from the lab, university and school classrooms, Canadian Air Cadets, The UK Household Longitudinal Study, children and young adults in state care in rural Transylvania, and the Tsimane forager-horticulturalists of Bolivia. I am currently helping to develop a longitudinal database among the Mayangna of Nicaragua.
