About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford. I received my PhD in psychology from the University of British Columbia.

Cultural Evolutionary Psychologist

I have been working for several years in Lautoka Fiji. I work primarily with Indo-Fijian Hindu and Muslim populations looking at the influences of religion on culture and group cognition.  

Research

 My research focuses around the culture and cognitive origins of supernatural and religious beliefs. I am particularly interested in how thinking about minds  and causal reasoning is related to supernatural beliefs.
