I conduct research on the evolution of both human and non-human social systems and their relationship with reproduction, kinship, cooperation, and conflict. My main research project to date has been ethnographic research among the Agta, hunter-gatherers from the northern Philippines. I am interested in the economics of hunting-and-gathering societies and the evolution of human kinship. As well as empirical fieldwork, my research also involves computational and mathematical modelling of social and cultural evolution. I am also involved with the Large Animal Research Group in the Department of Zoology.
