I received my doctorate in anthropology from the University of California-Santa Barbara in 1978. Most of my research is on native peoples of the Venezuelan Amazon (Yanomamö & Ye'kwana) with funding from the NSF, LSB Leakey Foundation, and Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation. My research interests are in behavioral ecology, food & labor exchange, human ecology, marriage, kin and parental investment, and Amazonia.  I regularly teach courses on social structure, contentious issues in anthropology, warfare, and introductory cultural anthropology.  I am also president-elect of the Evolutionary Anthropology Society of the American Anthropological Association, consulting editor for Human Nature, and serve as treasurer of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society.
