Biography

Dr. Hooper's research asks, to what extent can major patterns of variation in societal organization across human history be explained by a finite set of evolutionary principles and processes? Dr. Hooper's research combines ethnographic fieldwork in Amazonia and Central Asia with cross-cultural analysis and mathematical modeling. His work examines the biological and economic processes underlying the formation of human social networks, demographic rates of growth, fertility, ad mortality, as well as the emergence of social inequality, political hierarchy, and leadership.
