About

IMG_8407_edited.jpg

I study animal behavior, with the aim to discover more about animals' experiences of the world around them and how we can improve their welfare.

Specific research topics that I have been working on are individual variation in abnormal behavior, social learning, communication, and individual responses to socially disruptive events, such as death. I have mostly studied these topics in mammals, especially primates. 

Currently, I am studying stone tool use in island-living capuchin monkeys as an IMPRS doctoral student in the Department for the Ecology of Animal Societies at the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior and University of Konstanz.
