I am an evolutionary anthropologist in the broad sense, with interests in primatology, functional morphology (anatomy), evolutionary biology, biogeography, ecology, palaeontology and human origins. My work applies an evolutionary perspective and focuses on unpicking the complex relationships between different aspects of and actors in evolutionary systems.
I also have a particular interest in human behaviour, both across different human groups (ethnography) and as it compares to the behaviour of the non-human primates, and have done quite a bit of work looking at primate responses to climate change.
In addition to my primary work on evolutionary anthropology and primatology, I am also interested in the anthropology of science and how humans learn, teach, conduct research and communicate their work.
