It is indisputable that natural and sexual selection have shaped many aspects of human biology and behavior. My research seeks to understand how evolutionary pressures may have influenced various aspects of human mating. These include issues surrounding hormonal functioning, physiological characteristics, attractiveness and mate-value, signaling and mate acquisition, mate-poaching, as well as conflict strategies employed both within and between the sexes.
