Generally I am interested in comparative cognition and the evolution of cognitive processes. I study different aspects of physical cognition that can inform us about the cognitive processes that human and non-humananimals use to solve problems. I am particularly interested in the evolution of episodic memory and future-oriented cognition, which are often considered uniquely human.
