Research Interests

My research interests are broad and include phylogenetic comparative methods, primate ecology and evolution, biogeography, and the microbiome. I am interested in connecting these research areas to conservation. My dissertation research focuses on how human disturbance affects the microbiomes of three sympatric lemur species in southwest Madagascar.
