For my PhD studies I investigated a variety of fruit localisation strategies in two frugivorous rain forest primates: the grey-cheeked mangabey (Lophocebus albigena johnstonii) in the Kibale National Park, Uganda and the sooty mangabey (Cercocebus atys atys) in the Taï National Park, Ivory Coast, using a combination of observational and experimental approaches.
For my Masters I studied travel leadership in relation to sexual strategies in Thomas langurs (Presbytis thomasi) in Gunung Leuser National Park, Sumatra, Indonesia.
