Prof. Dr. Daniel Balliet

Daniel Balliet profile

I contribute to the project with my expertise on why and how humans cooperate with each other. I use experimental methods, field methods and meta-analysis to test evolutionary, psychological, and economic theories of human cooperation. My lab has recently created a machine-readable database of scientific studies on human cooperation.
