I research the vocal communication of wild bonobos. I'm interested in how and why bonobos produce call combinations (sequences of vocalizations consisting of multiple call types), and what this can tell us about the similarities and differences between animal communication and human language. My current work examines variation in call combinations produced by different populations of bonobos in order to understand the mechanisms underlying combinatorial communication in non-human primates.
