I am a junior researcher at the Primate & Evolutionary Anthropology Laboratory of the Anthropology department, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China.
I study animal societies and more specifically the underlying mechanisms that allow the emergence of a specific social structure and its adaptive structural properties.
How individuals interact between each other? How a society is structured to face challenges induced by natural selection (group cohesion, hierarchical structure, etc.)? These are some of the questions currently considered through multilevel and multi-methodological analyses (social networking and referential statistics) to understand the structural processes in animal societies, the ecological and evolutionary consequences over the structures themselves and their emerging characteristics.
This section outlines different aspects of my research and work experiences
