I am finishing 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. I am passionate about the mind and voice, and the interplay between politics, media, legislation, and the structure of society.
