Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Hunter College of the City University of New York; Director of the Primate Molecular Ecology Laboratory. Dr. Baden studies primate reproductive and social strategies. She focuses on the black-and-white ruffed lemur, but her broader interests are in infant care and fission fusion societies.
Assistant Professor, University of Rhode Island. Brian studies carnivores in Madagascar's southeastern rainforests, but his broader interests are in understanding population and community ecology, natural and human-induced cascading ecological effects, and management principles.
Associate Professor, Northern Illinois University. Dr. Irwin studies the effects of forest fragmentation on the viability of Propithecus diadema populations, studying behavioral ecology, parasitology, health and endocrinology in the Diadem Sifaka, Propithcus diadema, in Tsinjoarivo, Madagascar. Mitch also established the NGO Sadabe, which seeks "to develop novel and innovative ways to promote the coexistence of people and wildlife at Tsinjoarivo, and elsewhere where humans and wildlife come into conflict."
Forensic Scientist at the U.S. National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory, and Co-Director of the Red-Bellied Lemur Project in Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar. Rachel studies sensory ecology and population genetics in red-bellied lemurs, Eulemur rubriventer.
Academy Professor, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, Finland
Full Professor, Department of Anthropology; Director of Environmental Studies, Tulane University. Dr. Jack is a primate behavioral ecologist whose research examines the influence of dispersal patterns on male sociality and cooperation, male reproductive strategies, and hormonal correlates of male dominance rank and life history status.
Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, UMass Amherst. Dr. Kamilar studies the relationships between behavior, morphology, and ecology within an evolutionary context, to understand broad patterns of primate diversity through space and time.
Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, UT-Austin. Dr. Lewis established and directs the Ankoatsifaka research station in the Kirindy Mitea National Park. She studies the behavioral ecology of Verreaux's sifaka, conservation genetics of nocturnal lemurs, and the effects of fire and cyclones on tropical dry forests.
Dr. Stephen King
Adjunct Assistant Professor, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Dr. King studies senescence in Propithecus edwardsi and works in affiliation with Dr. Jernvall's Evo-Devo Lab in Helsinki, Finland and Dr. Laurie Godfrey's lab at UMass Amherst.
Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Studies, University of Redlands. Dr. Verdolin is a behavioral ecologist who studies the genetics of prairie dogs and mouse lemurs. She is currently studying social networks. She is also an accomplished author and radio personality on the DL Hughley radio show.
Dr. Wright's work led to the establishment of Ranomafana National Park, ICTE, MICET, and Centre ValBio. She is the director of ICTE, the President of the Board of Directors of Centre ValBio, and a professor in the Departments of Anthropology and Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University. She is also affiliated with the University of Helsinki, Finland.
