Peter J. Richerson

Professor Emeritus, Department of Environmental Science and Policy

Research Statement:

My main passion is cultural evolution. I frequently collaborate with Robert Boyd, Professor of Human Origins at Arizona State University, in research on cultural evolution. We use methods of analysis of evolution mainly developed by evolutionary biologists to study the processes of cultural evolution. The idea is to make models, do experiments, and conduct observational studies that illuminate the evolutionary properties of human culture and animal social learning, and the processes of gene-culture coevolution.
