Evolutionary Mismatch - Implications for the Modern World
Associate Professor of Psychology Norman Li from SMU’s School of Social Sciences holds a PhD and Masters in Arts in Social Psychology from Arizona State University. He also has a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Michigan and a Bachelors degree in Economics from Northwestern University.
His research interests include mate preferences and mate value, evolutionary social psychology, economic psychology and the mismatch of modern conditions and adaptive mechanisms.
Earlier this year, he published a research study on 'Evolutionary Mismatch', a phenomenon that largely underlies and explains most of the problems we have in the modern world. In this podcast, Associate Professor Li discusses this concept and shares his views on how it permeates every aspect of our lives, including low fertility.
