Welcome! I conduct research at the intersection of anthropology, psychology, and the evolutionary sciences. I study human social emotions, including their evolutionary origins and cultural manifestations, to understand human social relationships and community dynamics. I have a regional focus in the Pacific, where I conduct ongoing fieldwork among villagers in Yasawa, Fiji.
