Research interests

I try to understand how evolution shaped our preferences, and what its consequences are in our contemporary lives. ​My main area of expertise is the perception of faces and bodies.

My work has covered various topics such as parent-offspring conflict over mate choice, variation in female beauty standards through history, sexual selection on age at menopause, the developmental origins of economic preferences, and mate preferences for homogamy in facial features. ​

​I mix various methods and academic fields. For example, I use eye-tracking techniques, laboratory-based and online experiments, geometric morphometric analyses, image manipulation of faces, artworks datasets, and fieldwork in China.

My co-authors come from biology, economics, psychology, marketing, and anthropology.
