I'm a philosopher working in philosophy of biology, philosophy of language, animal cognition, and environmental philosophy.
Currently, I'm writing a book on how language and mind evolved from our social dependence on one another.
You can find a description of my research here.
At UCLA, I'm affiliated with the Center for Behavior, Evolution and Culture.
