I did my first degree in Biology followed by MSc in Human Biology (both at the University of Wroclaw, Poland) and MSc is Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Liverpool, UK. I did my PhD in Psychology at the University of York, UK (2013), looking at vocal production in wild chimpanzees. I then held postdoc positions at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland (2013-2016), exploring social correlates of chimpanzee vocal behaviour, and at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany (2016-2018), investigating hormonal underpinnings of chimpanzee social behaviour. I am also a holder of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I joined the University of Stirling as a lecturer in Psychology in January 2019.
