I am a biological anthropologist with training in evolutionary primatology.
My research is focused on three interrelated topics:
Bushmeat hunting, trading, and consumption
Tropical forest protected area management
Expansion and ecological/socioeconomic impact of industrially produced palm oil
I am engaged in a long-term research program in Cameroon's Korup National Park (KNP), where I conducted my fieldwork for my Ph.D. Korup NP is a tropical rainforest protected area located in a region that has long been recognized for its exceptionally high levels of plant and animal (especially primate) species richness and endemism and is home to some of Africa's most endangered primates.
