Bio

Diana Fleischman is an evolutionary psychologist currently writing about how evolutionary psychology can help inform our mental health and relationships. Raised in Georgia in a school that didn’t teach evolution, Diana’s peers called her “monkey girl” because of her ardent enthusiasm for evolution. 

Diana has worked in a variety of settings. As an undergraduate, Diana worked at the Language Research Center, where she helped to study symbolic communication in captive chimpanzees. After completing a PhD at the University of Texas at Austin with David Buss, Diana spent a year working on the psychology of disease and why humans are so bad at washing their hands. Her first five days on the job were in Bangalore, India, touring public toilets to see where Unilever should install sensor systems. Later, Diana worked in a clinical setting at the medical school of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill on a study of mental health during the transition to menopause. Most recently, Diana was an assistant professor at the University of Portsmouth in the UK where she taught the Psychology of Human Sexuality, Evolutionary Psychology, and statistics, among other subjects.
