The study of wild primates in southern Mexico is my focus of attention, but I also investigate regional, continental and global issues that impact primate conservation.
My research areas are primate ecology, behavior and conservation, frugivory and seed dispersal, forest fragmentation and wildlife conservation, arboreal agroecosystems and biodiversity conservation, socio-economic basis of tropical conservation, illegal trade of primates as pets, rescue and rehabilitation of primates from illegal trade. This also includes reintroduction of species in their indigenous range, specifically spider and black howler monkeys and the scarlet macaw in southern Mexico. The training of local inhabitants as citizen scientists where my long-term study sites are located in southeast Mexico has been another priority of my conservation oriented research.
