doctoral research at Cambridge was based on two years of ethnographic
research in Papua New Guinea in the late eighties, focused on the role of
ritual in binding groups together. Since then he has been studying the role
of ritual in the evolution of social complexity using a wide range of
research methods including carefully controlled experiments, surveys,
databases, and computational models.
