Main Focus

Humans are a particularly odd ape. We live in colossal societies, worship supernatural beings and prune our body hair according to current fashions. Behind this oddity is our capacity for culture. As a researcher I am interested in how human culture evolves and the cognitive abilities that underlie this process. For more information about my research, please check out my website here.
