I am 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. In the Fall of 2022 I will be joining the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Public Policy as a Visiting Assistant Professor.

I have held previous post-doctoral positions at Cambridge and the London School of Economics and Political Science. My doctoral work was undertaken at HPS Cambridge, and I hold previous degrees in both psychology and philosophy.

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‘.
