Helen is Research Fellow at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Strathclyde. Helen did her Bachelor and Masters degrees at the UCL and won further scholarship funding to do her doctorate at the University of Cambridge where her PhD research investigated the emergence of social complexity in humans.


For her subsequent post-doctoral work she researched dyslexia to try and understand what this form of cognition was and why it existed. From this she developed a new theory of human cognitive evolution which draws on economic and complex systems theory and is supported by a range of evidence from cognitive psychology, neuroscience, evolution, paleo-environmental evidence and archaeology.
