My research interests focus on animal communication and primate conservation. My PhD investigates wild savanna chimpanzee acoustic communication and how to use passive acoustic monitoring as a non-invasive tool for ape conservation. Specifically, I am interested in testing a new method to acoustically estimate chimpanzee density and compare results with more traditional methods such as camera trapping.
