About

I have been working with primates since 2002. My current research interests include studies focused on behavioral ecology of Neotropical primates, namely atelids. I am mainly interested on the influence of environmental variables, such as abundance and distribution of resources, and the nutritional content of food resources on primate behavior and their foraging strategies.
