Dr Dani Sulikowski BSc(Hons) PhD

I studied at the University of New England (BSc) and Macquarie University (BScHons) before graduating with a PhD from the Centre for the Integrative Study of Animal Behaviour at Maquarie University in 2011. I have been at Charles Sturt University since 2011, and have been the School of Psychology's (Undergrad) Dissertation Coordinator since 2017. Prior to that my teaching focused on research methods, statistics, and cognition.

My research focuses on the adaptive aspects of human and animal behaviour and cognition.  I am interested in understanding the adaptive mechanisms that support foraging behaviour, threat detection, and social interactions. I am also interested in how evolved social and reproductive strategies can account for modern sociopolitical ideologies. 

I sit on the Editorial Boards at Personality and Individual Differences, Frontiers in Psychology, and Scientific Reports. I am also the current President of the Australasian Society for Human Behaviour and Evolution (ASHBE).
