My research uses cutting edge genetic and genomic methods to pinpoint the shared environmental factors affecting polyspecific primate community health. I currently address this problem through postdoctoral research in collaboration with Dr. Christopher Schmitt of the Departments of Anthropology and Biology and the Sensory Morphology and Genomic Anthropology Lab at Boston University. For my Ph.D. at Indiana University I studied savanna chimpanzees in Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve, Uganda. For more information on these and other projects, see “Interests” above.
