Research & Teaching

My research focuses primarily on social and psychological influences on male reproductive physiology and competitive behaviour; perception of personality in faces; facial morphology and endocrine status. I'm Programme Director for the Evolutionary Psychology MSc.


After a BSc in Psychology at the University of Leeds I completed my PhD at McMaster University in Canada under the supervision of Martin Daly and Margo Wilson. Following periods of postdoctoral work in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Liverpool and the University of East Anglia working with Matt Gage, I worked briefly at the University of Stirling with Ian Penton-Voak before joing the Department of Psychology at Brunel in 2004.
