Current Research:

I am working on a postdoc in the Pan African Programme, a large-scale research project examining the drivers of behavioral diversity in chimpanzee populations. My research focuses on examining variation in social and demographic factors across chimpanzee populations, exploring how ecological factors drive this variation, and in turn, studying how demographic variation affects behavioral diversity in chimpanzees. My primary method for examining these issues involves analyzing camera trap videos from over 40 field sites.
