Hi, I'm Sam Passmore!

I'm a PhD student at the University of Bristol and a member of the VariKin project studying the evolution of kinship - check us out here!

I use quantitative methods to explore the diversity and evolution of kinship systems seen around the world.

Previously I studied and worked for Quentin Atkinson at the University of Auckland - the city where I grew up.

Outside of academia, I have worked as a Data Scientist at Pingar International.

I am also big into programming with R.

If there's something I can help with - don't hesitate to contact me!
