Research Interests

My research focuses on questions of plasticity in how animals cope with seasonal environments. Specifically, I investigate the potential short-term roles the gut microbiota of capuchins may play in helping them cope with changing environmental resources. In my PhD research, I combine behavioural primatology methods in the field with metagenomics methods in the laboratory to explore host-microbe symbioses and their connection to plasticity and adaptation in wild animal systems.
