My research interests are very broad, but my work has focused mainly on the evolution and diversity of modern humans, Homo sapiens. This research has involved a range of disciplines, including human palaeontology, evolutionary genetics, behavioural ecology, linguistics and prehistoric archaeology. I am also interested on questions related to biological adaptations and diet in small-scale societies. I currently have field projects in India (anthropology & genetics) and Kenya (palaeoanthropology).
