Research interest:

I am interested in how primates localise fruits within a highly competitive rainforest environment in which fruiting periods are less seasonal and predictable than in temperate zones. My personal challenge is to reveal the existence of cognitive complex skills within natural evolutionarily relevant conditions. I aim to achieve this through detailed observation of habitat characteristics, and long-term continuous observations of the ranging behaviour of individual primates.
