Biography

I am a PhD researcher in Comparative Cognition and Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Cambridge, and a member of Nicky Clayton's Comparative Cognition lab. My current research focuses on the use of deceptive motions to investigate attention, perception and complex cognition in corvids, cetaceans and primates, as well as the evolution of human artistic behaviour in the Upper Palaeolithic.
