Bio

My primary research interests are to understand how social and movement behaviors of primates influence the transmission of disease. One component of this research is to investigate whether individuals in the same social group have similar microbiomes, due to behaviors that increase the exposure and maintenance of gut microbiota. I will be investigating this in critically-endangered wild Grauer’s gorillas endemic to eastern D.R.Congo.
