I am director of the Swebeswebe Primate Project, a NTU research and teaching facility. My current program of research is to examine the physiological mechanisms that underpin the observed relationship between primate behaviour, individual fitness, and population survivability, with a particular emphasis on primate social evolution. I have studied vervet monkeys and chacma baboons in South Africa since 2012, having previously studied wild Barbary macaques in Morocco for my PhD. While most of my research is observational in nature, I also take experimental and mechanistic modelling approaches to the study of primate physiology and behaviour. I welcome contact from those interested in gaining field experience, those in search of a field destination for their postgraduate studies, or those interested in completing postgraduate degrees at NTU or UNISA.
