Doctor in cognitive science and Scientific director at Lund University Primate Research Station Furuvik.

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.

Publications that can not be found below are listed, and can sometimes be downloaded, here.

I teach on the course Animal Cognition and act as Head of Department of Philosophy.
