Broadly, I am interested in how aspects of social behavior evolved and are maintained in animal groups, and the implications of this for social species' conservation and management. I am currently working as a post-doc on a project investigating the evolution of cooperative behaviour in animal societies which is using the University of Exeter's Banded Mongoose Research Project as its study system.
