Lecturer in Anthropology
Department: Department of Anthropology
I am anthropologically trained primatologist with a theoretical interest in the functional role of social and ecological niche construction in primate societies, especially within the Superfamily Hominoidea. Applied aspects of my work are directed toward the broad goal of primate conservation, with a particular emphasis on understanding the economic underpinnings of the live animal trade. Additionally, I am interested in the ethical implications of human and alloprimate interactions, and the representation of animals in society. My writing is informed by research experience in Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
