My main research interests lie in the evolutionary processes that shape the distribution of behavior and cognition in animals, with a particular focus on primates and ungulates. I am currently working on the complexity and ontogeny of primate communication, and on the cross-cultural developmental study of children’s attitudes toward animals. I am also interested in ecology and conservation, with several international collaborations and a field site in Sulawesi (Macaca Maura Project), and I maintain a secret but intense love for psycholinguistics.
