Anthropology / HILL, KIM R.



Professor of Anthropology, School of Human Evolution and Social Change, Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity, Institute for Human Origins, Arizona State University, USA.

Research interests

My theoretical interests cover the evolutionary ecology of human behavior, and the evolutionary history of later hominins. I have worked on foraging theory, time allocation problems, food sharing, life history theory, parental investment, divisions of labor, cognition and social status, culture and the emergence of hyper-cooperative behavior. My applied work has included conservation biology and resource management, land rights issues, health issues, and the ethics of anthropological research.
