Full research profile


I obtained my undergraduate degree in Zoology and Anthropology from the University of Zurich. I then secured a scholarship to do an MA and PhD in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. After my PhD, I took a postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, where I worked in Mike Tomasello's lab in the Department of Developmental and Comparative Psychology. I moved to St Andrews as Lecturer in 2001. I was promoted to Reader in 2005 and to Professor in 2008. I was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2010.
