Assistant Professor of Criminology, Lakehead University

DB Krupp directs the SALT Lab in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at Lakehead University, Orillia. He also sits on the editorial boards of Evolution and Human Behavior, Archives of Sexual Behavior, and Frontiers in Psychology (Social Psychology section).

Dr. Krupp studies the evolution of cooperation and conflict, mainly in humans. To do this, he develops theoretical models of social evolution and applies them to human psychology, using both laboratory and field data to test hypotheses about cooperation and conflict. He earned my Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour at McMaster University, and held postdoctoral fellowships in Psychology and in Mathematics and Statistics. His work has been published in well-regarded scholarly journals, including The American Naturalist, Evolution and Human Behavior, Journal of Evolutionary Biology, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, and Trends in Ecology & Evolution.
