Sarah Robinson focuses on problems pertaining to human evolution using theoretical and methodological tools from Human Behavioral Ecology. She is specifically concerned with how competition, cooperation, social status, and hierarchy establishment are related to human social and ecological contexts. She is also interested in the application of diverse methodological approaches such as social network analysis, spatial analysis, and agent-based modeling to questions in her field.
