Curriculum Vitae

My research interests center on behavioral endocrinology, particularly in
regards to the effects of social interaction (e.g. grooming and other forms
of contact) on stress and general health. By extension I am intrigued by the
role that empathy, or more broadly, conciliatory behavior, may play in
facilitating such interactions. I am also intrigued by self-medicating
behavior. Capuchin monkeys both in the wild and captivity are presently my
model in non-invasive explorations of these realms.
