Associate professor in cognitive science and Scientific director at Lund University Primate Research Station Furuvik where we study cognition in chimpanzees and Sumatran orangutans.

Besides a general interest in human evolution and primate behaviour the work is focused on questions regarding great apes' capacities for representation. This has been addressed in studies of e.g. gorillas' and bonobos' understanding of pictures, and currently in various new projects. See below.

I teach on the courses Animal Cognition and Theories and Models in Cognitive Science.
