I am a Professor of Anthropology at James Madison University. I have expertise in behavioral ecology, population genetics, evolutionary demography, and locomotor behavior. At present, most of my research involves a wild population of lemurs (called White sifaka), which resides at Beza Mahafaly Special Reserve, southwest Madagascar.
White sifaka  (Propithecus verreauxi) are diurnal, group-living, arboreal, folivores.  These spectacular creatures are characterized by various fascinating behavioral and anatomical adaptations. I am part of a larger research team that studies the Beza Mahafaly sifaka population from just about every angle, including conservation, genetics, social behavior, hormones, life history, and energetics of movement.
