My research interests relate to how diet influences behavior in humans and nonhuman
primates. I am especially interested in studying nonhuman primates to gain understanding
of human evolution. I aim to advance theoretical understanding of how primates adapt
to their environments while simultaneously pursuing practical goals. These goals include
improving the care of captive primates and refining nutritional recommendations for
Walking speed as an aging biomarker in baboons (Papio hamadryas).
