      In the past, I worked mainly with human bones or fossils from human ancestors, but I’m starting a project with Sepela Field Programs that will have me following monkeys most days of the week for at least a year! Starting next month, I’m going to spend a few weeks of training out in the bush with vervet monkeys and chacma baboons, mostly, to learn more about their behavior and how to observe them in the least invasive ways possible!
