Conservation, primatology, and human-wildlife interactions
Research Overviews: Primatology, conservation, human-wildlife interaction, nutrition
Having worked in Southwest Cameroon, I have cultivated a diverse set of research interests revolving around nonhuman primates. Most of my work specifically focuses on the conservation of endangered species (Preuss’s Red Colobus monkey, Allen’s Swamp monkey, drill) and the improvement of conservation and wildlife management. I also try to emphasize the importance of zoos and wildlife sanctuaries within conservation initiatives. My fieldwork has exposed me to nonhuman primate veterinary practices, subsistence hunting, ecological transect data collection, and several ethnographic data collection methods.
Future strides within my academic career will add nutritional analysis and a stronger background in public engagement and applied anthropology. I plan to remain within the realm of conservation, aiming to improve the livelihoods of primates, both human and nonhuman.
