Guillaume received his PhD in Cognitive Sciences from the UPMC (12/2013). He then was a Fyssen fellow at the Universities of Neuchatel and Portsmouth (2014-2016), an ERC ‘FRONTSEM’ postdoctoral fellow at the ENS Paris (2016-2018). He currently is a British Academy International Fellow at the University College London.
Guillaume’s work explores social cognition in humans and non-human animals (chimpanzees, orangutans, blue and lhoest monkeys, in the wild and in captivity). More specifically, his research deals with social responses to danger, exploring (i) how social organisms communicate about the presence of danger and (ii) the way they cooperatively deal with it. He collaborates with the Crowd Cognition group on projects examining the effects of deliberation on collective decision making.
