I'm broadly engaged in research at the intersection of international conflict, political psychology, and evolutionary theory. I am particularly interested in the investigation of war (or coalitional aggression in general) as a product of an evolved coalitional psychology, as well as the seemingly intimate relationship between inter-group conflict and within-group cooperation. Toward this end, I've also received training as a Research Affiliate with the Center for Evolutionary Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
