Simone Pika has spent over a decade studying the diversity of animals' communicative systems and underlying cognitive mechanisms in captive and natural settings with a special focus on primates and corvids. Recently, she extended this research avenue to include artifical intelligence, multi-modal communication, phenomena of convergent evolution and turn-taking.
Dorothee Möllmann works since August 2019 as personal assistant to Simone Pika in the Comparative BioCognition Group.
