I am a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, where I am studying the emergence of language using an online experimental game, in addition to agent based models and corpus data. I was formerly a postdoctoral researcher at the Social Dynamics Lab based in Institute for Scientific Interchange in Turin, Italy from 2014-2015, and the University of Rome La Sapienza from 2013-2014.

I am broadly interested in the evolution of social systems and cognition, with a particular focus on language. I have collaborated with linguists, psychologists, complex systems scientists, and anthropologists to study issues surrounding the emergence, evolution, and dynamics of human language.
