James Sherlock is a Ph.D. at the University of Queensland studying the role of evolution in human mating. Specifically, he researches how evolved tendencies might create individual differences in what we're interested in romantic partners. He also looks at how we approach mating, what we do to make ourselves look good, and how we think others are perceived in terms of their mate qualities. Humans are sexually dimorphic, meaning that men and women differ from each other. He investigates how this manifests in mating strategy as well as looking at continuity between physical and psychological masculinity and femininity. Another area of interest is how evolution has influenced our decision-making processes, and in turn, how this influences mating.
