Seán Roberts is a lecturer in the Centre for Language and Communication Research at Cardiff University and a research associate at the department of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Bristol. He uses evolutionary approaches to explain how languages adapt to the cognitive and interactive constraints of their speakers and to their wider ecology. This involves large-scale cross-cultural statistics, experiments and computational simulations, as well as all the technical challenges these methods entail.
