Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Lakehead University

DB Krupp directs the SALT Lab in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at Lakehead University, Orillia.

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 his Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour at McMaster University, and held postdoctoral fellowships in Psychology (University of Lethbridge, McMaster University) and in Mathematics and Statistics (Queen's University). His work has been published in a range of journals, including Scientific Reports, Psychological Science, The American Naturalist, Journal of Evolutionary Biology, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, Trends in Ecology & Evolution, and Evolution and Human Behavior.
