I'm a Marie Curie post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Konstanzthe Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute

My research focuses on understanding the behavior, ecology, and development of social animals  - especially bats and primates. These two groups of mammals show high amounts of diversity  in social organization and ecology and are great comparative groups to understand the evolution of mammalian social organization & life history and their relationship to ecology.
