I was born and raised on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England, studied at University College London, and got my Ph.D. at Edinburgh University before setting off on my travels. After time at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum, Duke University, Universität Konstanz, the University of Western Australia and the University of Florida, I came to Arizona State University in 2013.

Over the years I have studied the behavior of many species - ranging from pigeons to dunnarts (a small mouse-like marsupial), but some years ago I found a way to meld my childhood love of dogs with my professional training and now study and teach the behavior of dogs and their wild relatives.
