Research Affiliate

I am a Research Affiliate at the Institute for Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology. Biologist, field primatologist and anthropologist, I am interested in primate behavioural ecology and primate cognition, and the implications that comparative studies of primate behaviour have for understanding aspects of hominin evolution. I have an extensive field experience, having observed wild chimpanzees and bonobos for many years, in different environments, at various field sites across Africa: Ivory Coast, Senegal, Uganda, Tanzania; and bonobos at two sites, Lomami and Lomako, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
