I am a final year DPhil student under the supervision of Susana Carvalho, Michael A. Huffman (Kyoto University), and Catherine Hobaiter (University of St. Andrews). My research focuses on identifying novel self-medicative resources used by the Sonso and Waibira chimpanzee communities in Budongo Forest using interdisciplinary methods. With my project I also seek to develop new methods for efficient identification of novel self-medicative resources, compare self-medicative resource use between communities, and interrogate our ethical obligations when conducting this kind of research.
