About Me:
I am an Associate Professor (Docent) at the Department of Zoology and the Centre for the Study of Cultural Evolution, Stockholm University.

At the Department of Zoology I mainly investigate primate brain evolution and the evolution of sexual size dimorphism. To study these issues I do comparative analyses, mostly on mammals.

At the Centre for the Study of Cultural Evolution my explorations mainly concern the potential of applying methods from research on biological evolution to cultural evolution.

I have also authored two books. The first on a non-religious world view for teenagers entitled “God Probably Doesn’t Exist” (available in seven languages) and the second entitled “Cooperation” (currently only available in Swedish). I also write frequently about science and religion in the press.
