David Buss currently holds the title of professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, he held positions at Harvard University and the University of Michigan. Buss completed his Ph.D. in 1981 at the University of California Berkeley.
Buss is an evolutionary psychologist, mostly focused on how aspects of evolutionary psychology account for gendered behavior in humans, human sexuality, and social relations between the sexes. Buss argues for evolutionary components in what he terms “human mating strategies.” His work also ventures into explaining homicide and homicidal behavior. On these subjects, he is perhaps best known for his books The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating, and The Murderer Next Door.
