My self-summary
I'm a scientist of human societies, a traveler, an enthusiastic (recreational) dancer, a petticoat-wearer, a waterfall-swimmer, and a prolific consumer of cocoa in its darkest forms.
What I’m doing with my life
Why do we have the moral and political ideologies that we do? Where do our tastes in art, literature, music, and manners come from? Our sense of fairness and rights? Why do we use innuendo? Why are we ever reluctant to apologize? My co-researchers and I strive to answer these questions, and more!
I’m really good at
Known for being smart, fearless, delighted, and consistently beneficent. Also fond of my tendencies toward affection, playfulness, adaptation, and intensity.
