Scholarly Interests/Activities

I am interested in using knowledge of animal behavior to conserve endangered species. In this context I have studied the behavior of Przewalski's horses in captivity and after reintroduction to the wild in Mongolia. On a theoretical basis I am intrigued by social behavior, especially mate choice, kin selection, and reciprocal altruism. I also have an interest in applied animal behavior.
