Rony Karstadt

Since Jan 1, 2022

I am a PhD student focusing on cultural evolution, the evolution of human behavior, and gene-culture coevolution dynamics. Currently, I am exploring the evolution of human handedness to ascertain the extent to which genes and culture each play a role in shaping it. I am also interested in the evolution of intelligence, social learning, philosophy of science, and modeling.
