More About the Author

Glenn Geher is Professor and Chair of Psychology as well as Director of Evolutionary Studies at the State University of New York at New Paltz. Glenn has taught several courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels - including Statistics, Social Psychology, and Evolutionary Psychology - and has recently won the New Paltz Alumni Association's Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award, along with the Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence from the State University of New York. First and foremost, Glenn is a teacher, and his primary goal is to educate and support his students and work to faciliate their success as they develop across their careers.

Glenn's publications generally address two broad themes - the interface of human mating and cognitive processes (mating intelligence) along with the state of Evolutionary Psychology within the landscape of academia. Among Glenn's publications are an edited book published with Nova Publishers ("Measuring Emotional Intelligence") and an edited book with Erlbaum ("Mating Intelligence: Sex, Relationships, and the Mind's Reproductive System" - co-edited with Geoffrey Miller). Glenn is also co-author of "Mating Intelligence Unleashed" (co-written with Scott Barry Kaufman). Glenn has two other books soon forthcoming: "Statistics: A No-Frills Approach" (co-authored with Sara Hubbard - published with Oxford University Press) and "Evolutionary Psychology 101" (published with Springer).

Glenn is passionate about evolutionary psychology - and, with this in mind, he worked with Alice Andrews, Mike Camargo, Rose Chang, Gordon Gallup, Heather Mangione, Sarah Strout, and David Sloan Wilson (among others) to launch the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS) in 2007. This society has grown and is currently one of the largest intellectual societies worldwide on the topic of evolutionary psychology.

In his effort to better integrate evolution into the behavioral sciences, Glenn has collaborated with David Sloan Wilson (and several other folks at Binghamton) to (a) develop SUNY New Paltz's vibrant evolutionary studies program and (b) to expand evolutionary studies across the world of higher education. Toward this end, along with Rosemarie Sokol Chang and Jen Waldo of New Paltz, Glenn and David received a large National Science Foundation grant that made for great advances in the expansion of evolutionary studies in the USA and beyond.

Glenn also directs the New Paltz Evolutionary Psychology lab, which churns out research on various topics related to evolution and behavior.

Glenn has many hobbies, including hiking, running, weightlifting, cooking, tennis, racquetball, basketball, roller hockey, ice hockey, football, fishing, canoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, caving, swimming, travel, camping, and working on his blog: Building Darwin's Bridges (at evostudies.org). He's also lead guitar player for the Hudson Valley's only all-professor punk rock band: Questionable Authorities.

Glenn lives in a house in the woods on the fringes of New Paltz, NY with his wife Kathy and their two children, Megan and Andrew - and several pets. They have a lot of fun together! glenngeher.com
