Research Area: Primate ecology, evolution and microbiomes
My research interests are broad and include phylogenetic comparative methods, mammalian color evolution, biogeography, and the microbiome. My dissertation research focuses on how human disturbance affects the microbiomes of three sympatric lemur species in southwest Madagascar. I am the 2020-2021 Vice President of TLS.
