I am an anthropologist and behavioral ecologist interested in primate social behavior and primate responses to anthropogenic changes in their environments. Furthermore, I am passionate about data analytical methods.
Recently, I conducted research on male-male competition in baboons and I am currently investigating costs and benefits of female sociability in white-faced capuchins and red colobus monkeys. Having worked in several places in the world where primates and other organism are threatened by human activities, I also want to understand how animals respond to environmental change , so that I can help prevent their extinction.
