We use molecular data (genetics

and physiological assays) combined with field work and computational approaches to learn about primate ecology and evolutionary biology.

In particular, the lab's research focuses on primate life history and aging and lemur ecological and conservation genetics


We primarily study

wild endangered sifaka lemurs 

(Propithecus verreauxi) at 

Bezà Mahafaly Special Reserve

semi-free ranging lemurs at the Duke Lemur Center, and captive populations of chimpanzees in the United States.
