I study non-human primates behavior and ecology, specifically of those who live in "high-degree fission-fusion societies". I study the Ngogo chimpanzees in Uganda, and two communities of spider monkeys in Colombia and Ecuador. My dissertation aims to elucidate the nature of male-female chimpanzees social interactions and its' implications on future reproduction.

Primatology, Behavioral ecology, Genetics,
My research interest lies both in the biological evolution of primates´ social and mating systems. Using primate behavioral and molecular ecology I intend to explore the nature of social behavior and ultimately, to understand the relevance of fission-fusion dynamics in the evolution of human sociality.
