Research Fellow, University of Otago

We humans are a particularly odd ape. We live in colossal societies, worship supernatural beings and prune our body hair according to fashion. Underlying this oddity is our capacity for culture. As a researcher I am interested in how human cultures evolve and the cognitive abilities underlying this.
