I have been affiliated with WildCRU since 2007, when I completed my DPhil on the Zanzibar red colobus at the University of Cambridge. I studied the red colobus in unprotected mangrove and coral rag forests to document the extent of their behavioural flexibility in marginal and human-disturbed habitats. In 2007, I surveyed primates and duiker on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea on contract with the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program (BBPP) with an interest to investigate the extent to which bushmeat market data represent the state of wild populations. Prior to this research, I assisted with a long-term study of spider monkey socioecology in Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica and interned at Zoo Atlanta, Georgia on the Golden Lion Tamarin Re-introduction Program. In 2002, I received my first degree in Animal Behaviour from Bucknell University, where I studied social vigilance in Hamadryas baboons and the effects of effort on the food preferences of ring-tailed lemurs.
