Dr Charles Efferson

Personal profile

My research focuses on the study of human cooperation, social learning, and the cultural
evolution of preferences, social norms, and harmful traditions. I routinely mix theory
development with the analysis of both experimental and observational data. I have
conducted fieldwork in Europe, Central Asia, Africa, and South America. My research
often has direct policy implications, and for this reason I have been invited to speak at a
number of conferences and workshops organized by the United Nations and the European
Commission. Among other journals, I have published in Philosophical Transactions of
the Royal Society, Nature Human Behaviour, Proceedings of the Royal Society, PNAS,
Science, and Nature.
