Research Fields I have conducted my research at the Berenty Reserve in Southern Madagascar on social ecology of the ring-tailed lemur, which is an endangered species. Southern Madagascar is a region experiencing significant loss of forest, and consequently, only a small forest remains today. I am interested in answering questions about how biodiversity of the whole region can be preserved.
