Her primary areas of study are Demography, Child mortality, Reproductive success, Fertility and Grandmother hypothesis. Her work in the fields of Cooperative breeding overlaps with other areas such as Natural fertility. Her work in Cooperative breeding covers topics such as Demographic transition which are related to areas like Grandparent.
Her Child mortality study deals with Mortality rate intersecting with Helping behavior, Affect, Child survival and Survivorship curve. Her Developmental psychology research extends to Grandmother hypothesis, which is thematically connected. Her Birth rate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Girl and Sex ratio.
Rebecca Sear focuses on Demography, Fertility, Developmental psychology, Life history theory and Social psychology. Her study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Grandmother hypothesis, Affect, Child mortality and Reproductive success. Her Child mortality research includes themes of Mortality rate and Polygyny.
In the field of Fertility, her study on Demographic transition overlaps with subjects such as Total fertility rate. She has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Parental investment and Cooperative breeding. The various areas that Rebecca Sear examines in her Cooperative breeding study include Grandparent and Low fertility.
Her main research concerns Demography, Demographic economics, Fertility, Life history theory and Parental investment. The study incorporates disciplines such as Girl and Anthropometry in addition to Demography. Her work focuses on many connections between Demographic economics and other disciplines, such as Intergenerational transmission, that overlap with her field of interest in Privilege and Normative.
Her Fertility study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Health survey, Ovulation, Parity, Evolutionary dynamics and Genealogy. Her Life history theory study incorporates themes from Low birth weight, Daughter, Life course approach and Happiness. When carried out as part of a general Developmental psychology research project, her work on Child development and Alloparenting is frequently linked to work in Longitudinal study, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.
Rebecca Sear spends much of her time researching Life history theory, Demographic economics, Time allocation, Perspective and Reproduction. Her work carried out in the field of Life history theory brings together such families of science as Demography, Birth weight, Daughter and Low birth weight. Her Demographic economics study combines topics in areas such as Disadvantaged, International development, Demographic transition and Herding.
Her Time allocation research includes elements of Parental investment and Socioeconomic status. Her study in Developmental psychology extends to Social support with its themes. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Menarche and Evolutionary medicine.
