Tamás Dávid-Barrett is Marc Buckley's guest on the latest edition of Inside Ideas. Tamas is a behavioural scientist, who asks what traits allow humans to live in large and culturally complex societies. His work focuses on how the structure of social networks change during falling fertility, urbanisation, and migration; as well as, how social networks vary over the human life-course. Tamás’s current projects include the origins of inequality regulation; why the behavioural rules between women and men vary so much across cultures; and the evolutionary foundations of sharing behaviour.
Tamás is a professor at the Centro de Investigación de Complejidad Social at the Universidad del Desarollo in Santiago de Chile, teaches economics at Trinity College, University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, and is affiliated with the Population Studies Research Institute in Helsinki, Finland. He is a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute.
In the past, Tamás ran his analyst company, and did macroeconomic and development research in 35 countries all around the world. It was the highlands of Irian Jaya that changed the way he sees human societies.
