I am a Departmental Lecturer the University of Oxford, UK, and a member of the Research Group "Tools and Culture among early Hominins" led by Claudio Tennie in Tübingen, Germany.

I am curious about why and how humans have become the way they are. My PhD looked at the origins of material culture in human children. For this, I studied children's spontaneous tool-use abilities and their ability to acquire and produce cumulative culture.
