My current research interests focus on two separate areas.

(1) Nature and evolutionary limitations of the human brain. What are the consequences of the fact that the human brain is a biological organ designed for and adapted to its environment of evolutionary adaptedness, not necessarily the current environment? What can and can't the human brain easily comprehend and deal with? How do the human brain's difficulties with evolutionarily novel entities and situations interact with general intelligence?

(2) Determinants of offspring sex ratios. What are the factors that subtly influence the likelihood that parents have a boy or a girl? Who is more likely to have boys or girls, and why? What are the causes and consequences of biased offspring sex ratios?
