In NIMH I study mainly influence of siblings on partner choice and relationship compatibility. I try to figure out, whether several theories on pairing of sibling constellation apply. So far we have discovered, that traditional models based on complemantarity (e.g. older brother of a sister + younger sister of a brother = compatible couple) do not accord with real observations. However certain influnce might be attributed to the degree of sibling constellation homogamy (older brother of a sister + older sister of a sister = compatible couple).

At the Faculty of Science (Charles Univeristy) I pursue mainly study of cultural evolution. I want to approach the nature of sympatric cultural divegence and its possible impact on human and nonhuman organic evolution via computer simulations.
