Welcome to the Hill Evolutionary Social Psychology Lab at TCU

"Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution." ~ Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975).

My Background.

Born and raised in southeastern Wisconsin, I went on to earn my undergraduate degree in Anthropology from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee (pronounced Mwah-kee, in case you want to sound like a local). It was at UWM that I was first exposed to research in human behavioral ecology and evolutionary psychology. To make a long story short, it was love at first sight and off to graduate school I went. I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin working with Dr. David Buss. I have an almost endless number of research interests, but I tend to gravitate toward questions that address issues related to health, consumer behavior, social competition, and self-regulation.

So, you're thinking about going to graduate school?

Applications to our PhD program are due December 31st. You can find the application here. Before applying to graduate school here or anywhere else, you should consider reading this and our lab manual.
