As the new year dawns, we welcome two new members to the excd.lab:
Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow Sean Roberts joins us from a postdoc position in the Language and Cognition group at the MPI Psycholinguistics in the Netherlands. His research is in evolutionary linguistics and statistical approaches to modelling cross-cultural data. He’ll be with us for three years, developing computational and statistical workflows for identifying causal effects in linguistic and cultural data.
Rebecca O’Connor is an MSc Palaeobiology student. She’s doing a phylogenetic comparative analysis of marriage, looking at the evolution of marriage (monogamy and polygyny) in different language families.
We’re excited to have you both on board!
