  • My main research interests are primate ecology and primate conservation.
  • My Ph.D. research utilizes bioacoustic techniques to study the Bornean
  • gibbon (Hylobates muelleri). I am currently investigating the relative
  • importance of geographic distance and ecological similarity as drivers
  • of variation in the Bornean gibbon great call. I am also working to
  • develop a technique to census and monitor gibbons that utilizes variation
  • in their calls to identify specific individuals, a technique known as "vocal fingerprinting".
