Daniel Horschler

PhD Candidate



Daniel's research interests broadly center on cognitive evolution, with a particular focus on sociocognitive abilities relating to theory of mind and shared intentionality. He is also interested in relationships between neuroanatomy and cognition both within and across species. He address these topics by integrating non-invasive cognitive, behavioral, and biological research in dogs, wolves, and free-ranging nonhuman primates. Daniel graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016 with a B.S. in Psychology and minor in Anthropology. Before joining the ACCC, he conducted research on human metacognition at UNC, as well as canine and non-human primate cognition at Yale University.
