My main research interests lie in the scope of applied conservation research, with a more specific focus on behavioural ecology, conservation genetics and physiological responses to disturbance. For my PhD, I will be studying the endangered Zanzibar Red Colobus in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Department of Forestry and Non-Renewable Natural Resources in Zanzibar. The aim of the study is to understand the influence of habitat disturbance of primate oxidative stress, demography and population genetics using field and lab techniques.
