Department of Psychology

I am a PhD student in the Comparative Cognition Lab, supervised by Professor Nicky Clayton and funded by the Joyce Biddle Scholarship and the Girton Graduate Scholarship. I am broadly interested in the evolution of the mind and consciousness, both in humans and non-human animals. My current research focuses on mental time travel and episodic(-like) memory in diverse taxa including corvids, parids, and dolphins, in both captivity and the wild.
