Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Currently, I work at the realms of primate social interactions, personality, and empathy. I held a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship until March 2018. My research is interdisciplinary; I operate within the frameworks of evolutionary anhtropology, anthrozoology, comparative psychology, behavioural biology, and social interaction research. In a newly established project, I will be studying human-horse cooperation in a multidisciplinary approach to compassionate interaction between humans and animals.

Prior to joining the HU, I have worked at Leiden, Utrecht, Cambridge, and Zurich universities. In my past research I have investigated primate cognition, the evolution and mechanisms of social relationships, conflict management, and communication.
