I am a biological anthropologist specializing in the ecology, behavior, and conservation of primates, particularly in the Neotropics. Broadly, my research concerns how ecological and evolutionary processes influence behavioral patterns, including the evolution of feeding and foraging plasticity and the evolution of mating systems. I conducted the first long-term field study on the critically endangered Andean titi monkey (Plecturocebus oenanthe) in Peru, as a Fulbright Scholar. I am passionate about developing local and community-based initiatives to enhance conservation methodology, and have taught several primate behavioral ecology and conservation courses in Peru and Panama.
