Assistant Professor of Cognitive Psychology

I received my doctorate in Cognitive Psychology from Kansas State University researching evolutionary social cognition, in particular, human mate choice and attraction. My research interests include social and cognitive models of relationship decision making.

How do we cognitively perceive ratios of men to women?

How do we understand if someone is interested in us or not?

How does uncertainty about offspring genetics affect our cognition and behavior?

How do we combine a person's traits to determine if they are attractive?
