I’m a BBSRC David Phillips Fellow at the Centre for Behaviour and Evolution and the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University.

I research how ecology and evolutionary history influence cognition and sensory behaviour.

I make use of insights from psychology and neuroscience to design experiments exploring the diversity of cognitive and sensory behaviours in animals. Comparing animals as diverse as insects and humans reveals how animals are uniquely adapted to their biology and ecology. You can read more about my research projects here.
