Max Krasnow

Evolutionary Psychologist

Max Krasnow is an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department and the director of the Evolutionary Psychology Lab at Harvard University. He studies the design of the cognitive mechanisms that underlie human sociality and how they evolved, using a combination of analytic modeling techniques and standard behavioral experiments to triangulate on answers to these questions. He is interested in advancing the basic science understanding of human social nature, and also in better characterizing the ‘levers’ on that nature that can help tailor public policy to produce better effects.
