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.
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.
