I research sex differences and relationship preferences from an evolutionary perspective. My current research projects involve answering the questions:
- What attributes do people find attractive in a partner?
- Under what circumstances do people change the types of relationships they desire (e.g., short- vs. long-term relationships)?
- How different are the sexes in their mate criteria?
- Which aspects of mating psychology are universal and which are more influenced by culture?
Prior to my current post, I completed my PhD at Swansea University, UK under the supervision of Dr Steve Stewart-Williams. Before that I received a BSc(Hons) degree in Psychology from Cardiff University, UK. I’m currently a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
