Current Research:

All human behaviour results from psychological mechanisms and psychological mechanisms ultimately become the point of inception for sexual selection, conspicuous behaviour, self-compassion and fitness indicators. I am interested in using quantitative analyses and computational modelling to contribute to the theory of evolutionary psychology and consumer psychology.

Research Interests:

Sexual selection; Conspicuousness; Creativity; Happiness and contentment.
