Research Interests

I am broadly interested in behavioural ecology, with a particular interest in primates. I completed my PhD in 2019 in collaboration with Liverpool John Moores University and the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa focussing on the behavioural ecology of urban vervet monkeys. Currently, my research focuses on how urban primates adapt to quantified anthropogenic pressures, considering multiple aspects of behavioural flexibility, such as foraging and social behaviour. I am interested in the multiple facets and scales of human-wildlife interactions and how we can apply this knowledge to create suitable management recommendations for human-wildlife coexistence.
