Jacob D. Negrey


I’m a primatologist and anthropologist working at the interface of animal behavior, infectious disease ecology, and “geroscience” (i.e., the biology of aging and age-related diseases). I integrate data on social interactions, physiology, and microbial communities to better understand variation in primate health and longevity as well as the trade-offs that individuals necessarily make in a resource-limited world. I’m especially interested in the ways humans impact nonhuman primate health and how we can leverage knowledge of these processes to promote both human and nonhuman welfare.

In 2023, I joined the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona as an assistant professor. If you're thinking about pursuing a PhD or you're an undergraduate student looking for research experience, feel free to contact me!
