My research focuses on the cognitive abilities of apes and corvids in the physical domain. Both proximate and ultimate mechanisms of physical cognition are investigated, in the hope we will learn more about what these animals understand about the physical world they inhabit, how it has evolved and why particularly in these distantly related taxa.
