Research interests : cognitive and evolutionary anthropology

I am currently a PhD student at Harvard University in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology. I ask why human societies everywhere, from nomadic hunter-gatherer bands to industrial states, reliably develop complex traditions with striking similarities. I focus on canonical anthropological puzzles, such as shamanism, music, narrative archetypes, and beliefs in witchcraft and sorcery.
