Interested in working with me?

Currently I am based in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at St Andrews. Our department is newly established and part of the Center for Social Learning and Cognitive Evolution. We are an international, collaborative and interdisciplinary team working on a range of exciting questions while combining different disciplines and collecting data in the field, sanctuary, zoo and lab. Our core strength is technical and social problem solving in animals with a focus on great apes. We benefit from shared seminars and close collaborations with other schools of the University of St Andrews.


I am dedicated to teaching and supervising. I am committed to being fair and respectful to everyone and take diversity, equality and inclusion seriously. I welcome all motivated students with interests to contact me. There are also voluntary summer positions available for under- and postgraduates. Please get in touch with me to discuss your ideas for short- or long-term projects.
