Using methods from anthropology and developmental psychology, I study hunter-gatherer children’s learning. I use these data to understand the evolution of cumulative culture and human childhood.
What I want to achieve:
I highlight human diversity in learning ecologies, in order to problematize what we consider to be normal human development in the west.
I am a co-founder and co-director of Forager Child Studies, an interdisciplinary research collective which investigates the pasts, presents, and futures of forager and mixed-subsistence children’s lives. You can read more about it here.
