I'm a psychology lecturer based at Swansea University, UK. My research field is evolutionary psychology which acknowledges that the mind, much like the body, is subject to the forces of evolution, and has been shaped over time by the challenges encountered by our ancestors.
As part of my research I explore the vast individual differences in mating preferences humans show. I explore what attributes people find attractive in a partner, under what circumstances people change the types of relationships they desire (e.g. short- vs. long-term relationships), and how different the sexes are in their partner preferences.
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.
