Professor of Biology at Duke University, Associate Director for Science at NESCent. Studies the ecological, physiological, and genetic correlates of behavior in wild populations of large mammals; has spent 30 years studying wild primates in Kenya, and 10 years studying African elephants. Directs the Amboseli Baboon Research Project and spends several months each year in the field in Kenya. Prof. Alberts has been at Duke University since 1998.
My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently President of the Ecological Society of Australia and Zoology Museum Curator, University of New England.
Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Cognition, Evolution and Behaviour; Member of Directorate, Institute of Child and Youth Studies, University of Lethbridge; Executive Editor, Animal Behaviour 2006-2011; Editor, Advances in the Study of Animal Behaviour; Past Member of Council, Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour.
Associate Professor of Integrative Biology and Neuroscience.

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

Own lab QMUL 2000.
Lab focuses on genetics of behavioural disease using zebrafish as a model system.
I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.
I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.
