School of Social Sciences


Annika Paukner is a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences.

Career overview

I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Stirling, and then worked as a Staff Scientist at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Maryland, USA. I joined Nottingham Trent University in January 2019 as a Senior Lecturer.

Research areas

I am interested in animal cognition, how different species have developed the same or different cognitive abilities to us humans, and the underlying causes and mechanisms of these abilities (both developmentally and evolutionary). I primarily work with non-human primates and tend to focus on social cognition.
