Ángel V. Jiménez
I am a postgraduate research student working with Dr. Alex Mesoudi (supervisor) and Dr. Charlotte Brand (Post-Doctoral Researcher) in the Project “The Cultural Evolution of Social Hierarchy”. We will carry out a number of laboratory, online and field experiments to explore the effects of dominance-based and prestige-based social hierarchies on social learning and the long-term consequences of learning from high status individuals. Prior to this project, I studied a master at Durham University, where I conducted a couple of experiments about cognitive biases in vaccine-related information and decisions.
