Corey Fincher (ESRC Postdoc) Mate preference versus choice

I worked in the Face Research Lab from 2011 to 2013, after which I started a Assistant Professorship in the University of Warwick Department of Psychology.

My research over the past few years has focused on questions regarding topics such as where cultural variation and other forms of biological diversity come from, and how the evolved response to infectious disease stress variation contributes to human value systems and national development. Ultimately, though, my interests include the evolved psychology of all organisms.

I earned my PhD in Biology from the University of New Mexico in 2008 with Randy Thornhill and Paul Watson as my committee chairs. I also earned my M.S. in Biology from UNM with Thornhill and Watson. Prior to this I conducted graduate studies and research at Oklahoma State University with the guidance of David Duvall. I earned my B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Ecology from Oklahoma State University.
