Dr. Alec Beall wrote this mini-biography so he'll stop referring to himself in the third-person now. I received my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2016 and I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher at UBC supported by a fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Research Overview

My main research goal is to further scholarly knowledge and understanding of close romantic relationships, sexual attraction, and goal-oriented human behavior more broadly. I approach these topics from an evolutionary theoretical perspective.

In addition, I'm currently working on a collaborative research project between the UBC business department and the Environmental Defense Fund (a US-based nonprofit environmental advocacy group) geared towards reducing climate change.

I also write a sexual attraction science BLOG for Psychology Today.
