Research Interests

Competition and the resulting conflicts and their resolutions in primates are my main focus of research. This includes the social structure of gregarious animals (e.g. agonistic interactions and dominance relationships, grooming relationships) as well as parameters shaping the strategic options (for instance life history traits or ecology in general). I have observed captive macaques in Germany and wild colobines in three Asian countries. My research is, however, question-oriented rather than taxon based and I am interested in any kind of research on the above topics (be it in captivity or in the wild).
