Abstract

Animal communication on Earth shows us fundamental constraints on language that would also apply on any other planet. Dr Arik Kershenbaum is a zoologist at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Girton College. He researches animal communication, particularly in cooperative predators like wolves and dolphins, attempting to uncover what this communication tells us about the fundamental principles driving the evolution of language. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Cambridge, and his PhD from the University of Haifa in Israel.
