Career

Bulbulia's early work explained how features of religious beliefs and emotions make people more predictably cooperative with members of their group, and uncooperative with people regarded to be social threats. Later work quantified the effects of religion on social responses to test functional theories of religion.

Bulbulia was born in Buffalo, New York. He received his PhD from Princeton University in 2001.
