Primates in the ACG, Costa Rica

Research Project Capuchins

My postdoctoral research focused on how dispersal patterns and cooperation influence reproductive success in white-faced capuchins in Sector Santa Rosa in the Área de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG). I am now studying the genetic structure of three sympatric primates (white-faced capuchins, mantled howlers, and black-handed spider monkeys) in the larger conservation area ACG. Read more here.

Colobus at Boabeng-Fiema, Ghana

Research Project Colobus

During my doctoral research, I investigated how ecological and social factors affect dispersal patterns and social relationships in white-thighed colobus monkeys. I am currently investigating how immigration status and social network position affect their gut microbiome, which can have important health implications. Read more here.


Tolerance and post-conflict affiliation in marmosets

Survey of the galago population at Boabeng-Fiema

I conducted a population survey of the Demidoff's dwarf galagos at Boabeng-Fiema (Campos et al. 2012) in collaboration with Fernando Campos and Teresa Holmes. This study was part of an ecotourism development project funded by the International Primatological Society.
