My primary interest is in the evolution of primate societies through the study of their proximate mechanisms. I am particularly focused on how primate endocrinology and neurology mediate these societies. My current research in this area investigates the role of the neurohormones oxytocin and arginine vasopressin and their respective receptors in mediating baboon sociality.
