My main research interest is the evolution of cognitive skills. I am particularly interested in whether, and if so, how, different socio-ecological living conditions influence animal cognition. My current research work focuses on socio-cognitive adaptations, vocal imitation skills, and mental time-travel abilities in parrots and marine mammals.
