Evolutionary accounts of paranoia
Research Interests: Evolution of Social Cognition, Embodied Cognition, Paranoia, Intergroup Conflict, Cooperation, Trust, Life History Theory, Evolutionary Biology, Agent-Based Modelling
Bio: I graduated from Middlesex University London in 2021 with a BSc (Hons) Psychology. I have a keen interest in the evolutionary origins of behaviour. For my final year undergraduate dissertation I investigated aspects of paranoia in an attempt to understand its possible evolved function. For this work I used an agent based modelling approach.
I have a broad interest in integrated approaches to behaviour, such as behavioural ecology, evolutionary psychology, primatology, and neuropsychology. To this end I have just accepted a place on the MSc by Research (Evolutionary Behavioural Science) at Middlesex University to study Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla) behaviours in the wild.
