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