I am a researcher in the field of cultural evolution. My work is at the interface of psychology, anthropology, and sociology. I am interested in particular to contemporary cultural phenomena, and I use a naturalistic, quantitative, and evolutionary approach with different methodologies, especially individual-based models and quantitative analysis of large-scale cultural data.
I wrote a book for Oxford University Press: Cultural evolution in the digital age, and an open access manual: Individual-based models of cultural evolution. A step-by-step guide using R (a physical version is available with Routeldge). You can find here my institutional web page.
I am currently (2022/2023 - term 2) involved in the following modules (material at the links available only to Brunel staff/students!):
PY1701: Statistics - module leader (BSc Psychology first year)
PY5613: Cross-cultural and Evolutionary Research Methods - team taught (MSc Psychology, Culture and Evolution)
