I am an Addison Wheeler Fellow at Durham University. I research the evolutionary origins of culture and the human mind, particularly communication and language, and I blog about these topics here. You can also find links to all my published papers. Until spring 2012 I was based at the University of Edinburgh, where I completed an MSc., PhD., and two postdoctoral fellowships.

I have recently received the British Psychological Society's 2010 award for Outstanding Doctoral Research, and the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association's 2011 New Investigator Award.
