Research Interests

I am interested in the evolution of digestive enzymes in non-human (and human) primates.

Current Projects

For my dissertation I am planning a cross-species and cross-site comparison of pepsinogens in New World monkeys in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, in order to investigate how differences in diet act as a selective force on enzymes in the digestive system.
