Biography

I am a comparative psychologist intersted in interactions and relationships between human and nonhuman primates in a range of contexts, including field, zoological, and laboratory settings. I am particularly intrested in the welfare/wellbeing (wellness) implications of cross-species interactions. 

In additin to my primatological studies, I am interested in explorations of research designs and the [potentially flawed] use of social expectation and assumptions on the process and interpretation of psychological research. 

Finally, I am an avid gamer and very intersted in the psychology of video and roleplaying games.
