I am interested in human and animal behaviour. My research focuses on how agents learn from the world around them, make decisions and take actions to achieve their goals. In particular, I am interested in collective behaviour, where agents influence each other, and the emergent effects that make the group different to the individual.
I also have a strong interest in a variety of statistical biases inherent in data analysis across many fields, with a particular focus on behavioural ecology, evolutionary biology and palaeontology.
