About

I am Senior Research Scientist in the Social Mind Center, at Central European University, Budapest, where I research how evolution, mind, and culture link together. My first book, Speaking Our Minds, was published in 2014.

My major prizes and awards include an ESRC Future Research Leaders grant, several early-career fellowships, the New Investigator Award from the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association (2011), and the British Psychological Society’s prize for Outstanding Doctoral Research (2010).

I strongly recommend the International Cognition & Culture Institute, where many of my (frankly brilliant) colleagues and collaborators blog and comment on the latest research on cognition & culture.

I also dance the lindy hop. Avidly.
