Past and other research activities

In collaboration with other researchers, I conducted or participated in studies on:

  • Aggressive and post-conflict interactions in white-faced capuchin monkeys [REPORT]
  • Social dynamics of fur rubbing behavior in white-faced and brown capuchin monkeys [REPORT]
  • Social learning of leaf-swallowing behavior (i.e., a form of self-medication) in chimpanzees [REPORT]
  • The ontogeny of foraging competence in brown capuchin monkeys [REPORT]

I also participated in a primate conservation project:

A survey of the population density and abundance of ebony leaf monkeys in West Bali National Park, Indonesia [REPORT].
