I’m an experimental and quantitative psychologist from Australia with an interest in cultural evolution and understanding human cumulative culture. Specifically I study ritual, groups, social learning, and supernatural beliefs. My research involves working with both children and adults across diverse cultures. I have also worked with databases, and dabbled in formal simulations, and hope to extend this work further. I am committed to supporting transparent practices, including open science, pre-registration, and publishing datasets and material.
I obtained my PhD in the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland, Australia with Associate Professor Mark Nielsen, followed by a three-year postdoctoral research position in the School of Anthropology at Oxford University with Professor Harvey Whitehouse.
