David Buss' primary interests include the evolutionary psychology of human mating strategies; conflict between the sexes; prestige, status, and social reputation; the emotion of jealousy; homicide; anti-homicide defenses; and stalking. He has examined these issues in cross-cultural research, using a network of research collaborators around the world. His most well-known study is a study of mate preferences in 37 cultures. Other research areas include the psychology of homicide, violence and evolutionary forensic psychology, the psychology of friendship, and the psychology of happiness.

He has published a number of articles, books and edited volumes, including "The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology," "Sex, Power, Conflict: Evolutionary and Feminist Perspectives," and "Personality Psychology: Recent Trends, Emerging Directions."
