I use mathematical and computational models to understand the processes underlying cultural evolution. In particular, I focus on the effects of population structure and demography on the dynamics of cultural change. I use a variety of methods from analytical models to simulation frameworks to examine the effects of population size, age structure, and changing demography on patterns of cultural accumulation and cultural loss.
