I am a biologist with a special interest in Ecology and Evolution, and also an R enthusiast. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Washington University in St Louis, where I am integrating the perspectives of life sciences into human sciences. Here, I apply a range of methods and theories derived from ecology, evolution, and biogeography, to understand how human culture evolves at large geographical and temporal scales.
