About the Speaker

Daniel Fessler is Associate Professor of Anthropology at UCLA and an evolutionary anthropologist whose principal focus is contemporary humans. Combining anthropological, psychological, and biological theories and methods, he approaches a variety of aspects of human behavior, experience, and physiology from an integrative perspective in which humans are viewed as both the products of complex evolutionary processes and the possessors of acquired cultural idea systems and behavioral patterns. His many journal articles have been published in such venues as the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, Human Nature, Evolution and Human Behavior, and the Journal of Cognition and Culture.
