I am an Environmental Biologist with a MSc degree, in which I studied the social behaviour of gorillas. My research interests are in the broad area of animal behaviour, from an ecological and evolutionary point of view. I worked on the CatFACS project as a research assistant.

The overarching focus of my research is the evolution of social communication. I am particularly interested in human and non-human animal facial expression and emotion, and how these signals contribute to sociality and social bonding. I have been part of the development team for various FACS systems, including ChimpFACS, MaqFACS and OrangFACS.

I am a biological anthropologist and my main interests are the evolutionary morphology of primate facial expression and primate feeding mechanisms. I have also worked on the functional and evolutionary morphology of primate sensory ecology. I have contributed anatomical underpinnings to the development of MaqFACS, OrangFACS, GibbonFACS, DogFACS and more recently CatFACS.
