I am a PhD student in psychology at the University of Queensland, Australia. In my research I use the tools of cognitive and evolutionary psychology to study the mind and behaviour of humans and other animals. Specifically, I investigate the evolution, development, and psychological mechanisms of imagination, foresight, decision-making, and emotion. 

In early 2019, I will be joining the Schacter Memory Lab at the Harvard University Department of Psychology as a postdoctoral fellow on an NHMRC C.J. Martin Early Career Fellowship.

I am currently based at the UQ School of Psychology, at the Early Cognitive Development Centre and the Centre for Psychology and Evolution, where I organise a fortnightly discussion group on evolutionary approaches to psychology and behaviour.

I do experimental, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies with samples including undergraduate students, adult volunteers, young children and chimpanzees, as well as with large epidemiological, economic and national datasets. You can see a list of my published papers on the ‘publications’ page or on my Google Scholar profile.
