Primate behavior and evolutionary influences on human behavior are my main professional interests. My own research has included captive chimpanzees in the US and free-ranging baboons in Africa, but I try to maintain a broad comparative grasp of the primate literature. To understand the data I try to combine anthropology, ethology, comparative psychology, and other pertinent perspectives, drawing on both field and captive studies.
