I am an evolutionary anthropologist interested in humans’ adaptations to culturally structured worlds. My two primary lines of research are:

  1. Social cognition and intergroup relations - Specifically, I examine humans’ psychological adaptations for processing ethnic social categories using cross-cultural and developmental research in the United States and among agro-pastoralists in the Peruvian altiplano along the Quechua-Aymara linguistic border.

  1. Cross-cultural variation in kin effects on reproduction - I am working on the Family Matters Project with Rebecca Sear determining how and why family members affect fertility outcomes across space and time.
