I am a behavioural ecologist and biological anthropologist specialising in primate reproductive ecology, ecophysiology and conservation biology.
I have studied the physiological correlates of reproductive effort in monkeys and apes (chimpanzees, bonobos, and rhesus macaques) and have recently established the Bangor University Zanzibar Red Colobus Project.
My research aims to contribute to an integrated perspective on the variation in primate reproductive trajectories, and how those are affected by anthropogenic changes in their habitat. In doing so I combine behavioural observations with a variety of hormonal and other physiological markers that assess energy balance, oxidative stress, and immunocompetence.
