Faglige interesser

My research brings together perspectives in the fields of cognitive and evolutionary psychology, archaeology, and biology toward a naturalized account of social affliation with a focus on the duality of kinship. This research incorporates identity as dynamic in the shaping of social groups and intergroup conflict patterns.

Using eye tracking technology, I’m currently exploring social affiliation and kinship in the cognitive development of infants, and with field experiments looking at how these are represented within language and culture groups, primarily in contexts of intergroup conflict and adversity.
