Personal Statement 

My research examines the relationship between human behaviour and brain structure. As an evolutionary neuroscientist, I approach behaviour from “deep” anatomical and evolutionary frames of reference. I research the emergence of human cognition from fossil, archaeological, and genetic records. Most recently I have focused on the neuroanatomical and comparative basis of cognition and its implications for well-being and inclusivity in the built and unbuilt environment.

I am keen to supervise self-motivated PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with similar research interests.
