Anthropology | Primatology | Ecoimmunology

I am a biological anthropologist and primatologist studying the interactions of behavior, endocrine systems, and infectious agents in nonhuman primates. To date, my research has focused on the Ngogo chimpanzee community of Kibale National Park, Uganda.


To investigate the ecology of primate immune function, I employ integrative datasets ranging from behavioral observations and health assessments to noninvasive measurements of viral burdens, immune biomarkers, hormones, and body temperature.

I recently joined the Goldberg Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I am investigating gastrointestinal viruses in Kibale's chimpanzees.
