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

CURRENT PROJECTS
For my dissertation I am looking at variation in the genes coding for various digestive enzymes, including pepsin A, chymosin, and chitinase. I am conducting a cross-species and cross-site comparison of New World monkeys, in order to investigate how differences in diet act as a selective force on enzymes in the digestive system.
