David Sloan Wilson

I contacted Michele out of the blue to discuss her work. At the time, evolutionary science and cross-cultural psychology were largely separate "islands" of the "Ivory Archipelago"--so much that Michele wondered if I had contacted the right Gelfand! But we quickly established common ground and never looked back. We pooled our resources to hold a series of workshops that led to the formation of the Cultural Evolution Society. She invited me to give a keynote at Northwestern's School of Management, where I took this image that is quintessentially Michele--always brimming with good humor and energy.

Lucky me--I persuaded Michele to join the board of my new nonprofit, Prosocial World, and we will continue to work together at her new Stanford home. You're the best, Michele!
