I am a biological anthropologist and primatologist interested in disease ecology, animal behavior, and physiology. I study nonhuman primate health, focusing on environmental drivers of disease susceptibility and aging.

 

To address complex interactions between physiological and environmental variables,  I synthesize a variety of datasets including immune biomarkers, behavioral observations, hormones, climate measurements, health assessments, viral burdens, and body temperature.

I am currently a research fellow in the Shively Lab at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, investigating environmental drivers of age-related neurobiological diseases and decline in cercopithecine monkeys.
