Dr Andrew G. Thomas is a Researcher, training consultant, and therapist from the United Kingdom. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Swansea University. Andrew completed his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Steve Stewart-Williams in 2015 having previously received a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology from Cardiff University.
Andrew is an internationally-recognised expert in sex differences, mating psychology, and relationships. As an evolutionary psychologist, he believes that the mind, much like the body, has been shaped by the forces of evolution and that modern humans posses a mating psychology evolved to overcome the recurring challenges faced by our ancestors.
His work has been published in some of the top journals in evolutionary psychology, sexology, and personality. In addition, he has received funding for research on problematic mating behavior, such as sexual harassment and misogyny, from the UK and Welsh governments.
Andrew is also an integrative psychotherapist, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). He is particularly passionate about male mental health and integrating psychoeducation and evolutionary theory into his practice.
In addition to his academic pursuits, Andrew is a Training Consultant, proving bespoke training sessions for industry and health care providers, including the National Health Service, to help them better understand problematic mating behaviour among their workforce and service users.
Andrew runs a successful blog on Psychology Today called Darwin Does Dating where he uses an evolutionary lens to explore the mysteries behind finding and maintaining relationships.
