Tim Squirrell

I'm a PhD researcher at the University of Edinburgh, working on an ethnographic research project on a community centred around the Paleolithic diet and lifestyle. I also teach undergraduate Sociology and Social Policy.

In my spare time I spend a lot of my evenings and weekends at debating competitions, arguing in various seminar rooms around the continent. I also enjoy picking up heavy things and putting them down again.
