Research interests

Why are there so many different languages in the word? How did this astonishing linguistic diversity come about? And what are the social, environmental, and cognitive pressures that shape the evolution of language in our species?

These are some of the most fascinating questions in cognitive science and linguistics, and represent the range of topics in my research so far.

My work focuses on linking core aspects of cultural evolution and language learning using a range of novel behavioral paradigms and computational models. With these methods, I try to shed light on the communicative pressures and cognitive constraints that shape social interaction and language use, and to identify the social, environmental, and cross-cultural factors that lead to language diversity and cross-linguistic variation.

Besides language evolution, I am also interested in animal cognition and communication, child development, psycholinguistics, AI and swarm robotics, data analysis, and open science.
