Welcome to my website! My name is Stefanie Northover. I'm currently a PhD student in the Social Psychology program at Arizona State University (advisor: Adam Cohen). My primary research interest is the origin of religion, which I study from an evolutionary and cultural perspective. I am particularly interested in signaling theories of religious behavior. I have also done some research on artificial cues of being watched.

I received a Master of Science in Psychology in 2014 from McMaster University (advisor: Paul Andrews) and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2011 from California State University, Long Beach (mentor: William Pedersen).
