Research Interest: My general research interests include primate nutrition, health/disease and energetics, at both ecological and evolutionary scales. I am also interested in how these factors shaped hominin evolution. My specific research interests focus on the intersections between gut microbiota and energetics, nutrition, and health in wild Bornean orangutans.
