PhD awarded -- the end of a truly enriching and rewarding journey! Thanks to all that have helped me along the way, from my supervisors, to fellow PhD students, to my parents at home and all my friends in St Andrews & beyond!

New paper published today in Proceedings B: Why war is a man's game [Open Access!].

Also thanks to The Conversation UK for the opportunity to write an article explaining my results to a wide audience: check it out. Also very glad about the media attention this paper got: Phys.org, Daily Mail, Yahoo News, UPI, and more...
