My doctoral dissertation investigated foraging behaviors of the Mbendjele BaYaka people in the Republic of Congo, especially navigational and orientation strategies during daily search for food in the forest. Building on my doctoral research, I continue an investigation of foraging behaviors of the Mbendjele BaYaka people with more inclusive research themes— linkage between cooperative foraging and cooperative childcare in human subsistence decision making. My postdoctoral research integrates developmental and network perspectives to examine foraging group dynamics, childcare and food sharing among the Mbendjele BaYaka people.
