We are pleased to announce that Dr Lydia Luncz has joined the Oxford Primate Archaeology team, commencing a two-year postdoctoral position. She recently completed her doctoral work at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, for which she documented cultural variation in tool-use among wild West African chimpanzees in the Tai Forest, Ivory Coast. Lydia will be co-ordinating the project’s research into the evolution of chimpanzee tool-use, as well as conducting cross-species comparisons with the tool-using macaque and capuchin groups. Links to some of Lydia’s recent papers are available on the Outcomes page.
