Research Interests

I study the causes of large scale cooperation in humans. I am interested in combining formal models on the evolution of cooperation with cross-cultural studies exploring the empirical nature of human cooperation. I work amongst the Turkana, an acephalous nomadic pastoral society in East Africa, examining how and at what scale they solve the collective action problem in warfare.
