Biography

 

Professor, Department of Psychology (Social), College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

 

Education

Ph.D., Arizona State University, 1976

Research Interests

Integrating models from evolutionary biology and cognitive science to study the effects of fundamental social motivations (e.g., self-protection, status, mate search) on basic cognitive processes (e.g., attention to, encoding of, memory for different people in a rapidly presented crowd).  Recently applying the same approach to economic decision-making, creativity, conformity, aggression, and religious behavior (see Douglas Kenrick website below for more information).

Research Interests

Integrating models from evolutionary biology and cognitive science to study the effects of fundamental social motivations (e.g., self-protection, status, mate search) on basic cognitive processes (e.g., attention to, encoding of, memory for different people in a rapidly presented crowd). Recently applying our model to economic decision-making and various downstream social behaviors (including aggression, conformity, creative displays, prosocial behavior).
