Research Interests

- Aging

- Stress physiology

- How social adversity and support get “under the skin”

- Gut microbiome and Health

As part of the DFP research group “Sociality and Health in Primate”, this project investigates the social and physiological correlates of aging in a population of wild-living Assamese macaques. More info at https://www.sohapi.de/index.php/projects/p1.
