Oliver Curry

Oliver Curry is a post-doctoral researcher in the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford, and a Research Associate in the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science at the London School of Economics. Oliver completed his Ph.D. in 2005 in the Department of Government at LSE. His thesis argued that morality could be seen as the product of a suite of 'adaptations for cooperation' that evolved to solve the problems of cooperation and conflict recurrent in the lives of our ancestors. He is currently engaged in a number of empirical projects testing evolutionary theories of human social behaviour, including work on trust, fairness and coalition formation.
