I am a Post-doctoral Researcher in the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at Oxford University, where I study cultural evolution. My background is in psychology and evolutionary biology and my work covers a range of areas, including the evolution of religion and language, intergroup cooperation, and the human expansion from Africa. For more information about me, my research interests and some of the work I have done, please go to my homepage. I have recently taken up a position at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. I will remain a visiting academic at Oxford.
