I am a John Templeton Foundation funded post-doc with Andy Whiten and Kevin Laland where I am currently supporting several projects. I gained my PhD from St Andrews in 2010 co-supervised by Kevin Laland and Rachel Kendal (University of Durham). My PhD research investigated the evolution of human cumulative culture, with work on a range of primate species.

Following my PhD, I worked for Sense About Science and The Physiological Society on public engagement with science and science communication.
