My passion is primate social cognition, and my research focus is social learning and behavioral economics.
To promote a comparative perspective, I design methods that can be applied to multiple species - both human, and nonhuman, primates - and throughout my career I have been fortunate to work with a number of species.
Through my current role Lincoln Park Zoo, I design and coordinate the behavioral and cognitive research conducted with our chimpanzees and gorillas.

Jennifer Vonk is a comparative/cognitive psychologist with primary research interests in two overlapping areas: (1) animal cognition, and (2) cognitive development. The underlying goal of her work is to examine cognitive continuities and discontinuities between humans and both closely and distantly related species.
