I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Public Policy. Previously, I was a Leverhulme Early Career Researcher at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, and a College Research Associate at St. John’s College. Prior to this I held post-doctoral positions at Cambridge and the London School of Economics and Political Science.

My work analyses issues where human cognition, culture, politics, and biology intersect. My current project examines the ontological and epistemic assumptions underwriting cross-cultural comparison and their implications for research and policy design. I am one of the co-organizers of the project ‘Culture at the Macro-Scale: Boundaries, Barriers, and Endogenous Change‘.
