Dr. Hare’s research interests include comparing the psychology of hominoids (human and non-human apes); identifying features of our social problem-solving abilities that have evolved since humans, bonobos, and chimpanzees shared a common ancestor; and comparing the psychology of apes and non-primates to identify cases of psychological convergence. In 2004, Dr. Hare received the Sofia Kovalevskaja Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Dr. Hare received his bachelors of arts from Emory University and his doctorate from Harvard University.
