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. To find out more about me and my work, use the links above.
