Research interest(s)/area of expertise

  • Social and Personality Psychology / Relationships Science

    Health Psychology


Michael contends that the theory of evolution is a meta-theory for psychology. Thus, he uses an evolutionary framework to understand relationship psychology. He is specifically interested in how relationship and affective processes interact to impact health outcomes, interpersonal attraction processes, and intra- and inter-sexual competition.
