PhD Researcher, Nature and Function of Human Nonverbal Vocalisations, University of Sussex

I recently completed my PhD at the University of Sussex (the nature and function of human nonverbal vocalisations: evolutionary, acoustic, and psychological perspectives). I have just published research on acoustic cues in tennis grunts (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003347217301975) and last year co-published a review paper in Trends in Cognitive Sciences, offering a new perspective on the evolution of vocal control and speech (http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1SlJe4sIRu~fdE).

Upcoming research focuses on cues to upper-body strength in roars and screams.

Outside of academia, I write for The Unapologists and Climate Scorecard, where I focus on climate justice issues and their intersection with politics and society.
