Biography

Shona Duguid joined WBS as a Research Fellow in 2018. She is interested in the evolution of cooperation, particularly the psychological mechanisms involved in the diverse forms of cooperation. She studied psychology and human evolution at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Cambridge. Shona joined us from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, where her doctoral and post-doctoral research used behavioural experiments to compare how human children and our closest living relatives, chimpanzees and bonobos, coordinate their decisions for cooperation.
