My research has focused primarily on person perception, prejudice, and other aspects of social cognition. In doing so, I've been exploring bigger, broader questions about the influence of human evolutionary history on psychological processes, and about the impact of psychological processes on human culture. A lot of my recent research has focused on the "behavioral immune system" and its wide-ranging implications for social cognition, interpersonal behavior, personality, and for human health outcomes too.
