Sarah F. Brosnan

I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.
