Welcome to my website. I am a British Academy Research Fellow and Lecturer in Evolutionary Anthropology at University College London. I research human behaviour and health using evolutionary approaches. Since 2013, I have been conducting fieldwork in the Congo rainforest studying Mbendjele BaYaka hunter-gatherers. 

 

My currently active research projects are: 

  • social learning and cultural evolution (check out my blogs on this)

  • evolutionary approaches to health-related behaviour and mental health (check out our vaccine hesitancy project)

  • hunter-gatherer diet, health and physical activity 

If you are interested in collaborating on any of the above topics, feel free to get in touch. 

In addition to my academic work, I enjoy making short videos from the field, writing, travelling to remote places and dancing Cuban salsa.
