Biography

I studied my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at the University of Warwick in psychology. While completing my first Master's degree under the supervision of Dr Olga Fehér I investigated the development our of some syntax in zebra finches as a function of replace of different types of accoustic input during song development.

I am now studying applicability of the underlying statistical regularity found in human language to the nonhuman bonobo vocal communication system. We hope that this will help us to understand the evolution of the information theoretic principles underlying the evolution of human language, and its parallels with nonhuman animal communication.
