Michal Kandrik (PhD) Individual differences in men's mate preferences

I completed a joint degree in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen in 2011 and finished a MSc in Research Methods of Psychological Science at the University of Glasgow in 2013. The goal of my ESRC-funded PhD was to create a comprehensive model of men's mate preferences, using both theory-driven techniques (e.g., computer-graphic manipulations of facial masculinity) and data-driven techniques (e.g., reverse correlation). I received my PhD in 2016 and was an ERC-funded postdoc until 2017, when I took up a lectureship at the VU in Amsterdam.
