Dr. Elisabeth Oberzaucher


I am a biologist and evolutionary psychologist.

My research focuses on human behavior and cognition. In the past years I have specialized on the following core themes within interdisciplinary projects:

  1. human-environment-interactions

  2. mate choice and attractiveness

  3. communication and social interaction

Since 2012 I am the editor in chief of the Human Ethology Bulletin, a peer-reviewed, free, full open access journal hosted by the International Society for Human Ethology.

I have been teaching courses at the University of Vienna, plus ad hoc teaching assignments at other institutions since 2001.
