Modeling Mating: Human Mate Choice in Evolutionary and Computational Perspective

10/24/2020; 24 minutes

Human mating psychology is complicated. Daniel Conroy-Beam uses an evolutionary perspective to understand how mate preferences are linked to actual mating outcomes. His work combines agent-based modeling of mate choice evolution with studies of real couples to compare and explore candidate algorithms for how people select their mating strategies, evaluate potential mates, and regulate their relationships.
