I completed my undergraduate degree in zoology and my masters degree in animal behaviour, both at Bangor University. I focused predominantly on the social behaviour of primates, working with two different species of macaque. With these foundations I was able to acquire a research assistant position here at the UoP and join the Comparative and Evolutionary Psychology team. I work with Dr. Bridget Waller and Dr. Jerome Micheletta at the Macaque Study Centre, where we are aiming to develop a better understanding of macaque, primate, and therefore human cognitive abilities. My position here is currently funded by The Leakey Foundation.
