Principal Investigator

The Great Ape Behaviour (GAB) Lab investigates the behavioural flexibility of wild great apes as they navigate their complex social and ecological environments, with a focus on variation in communication and culture. The GAB Lab joins the University of Victoria's Department of Anthropology in Fall 2021. The GAB Lab collaborates closely with the PhASE Research Group at UVic, the PanAf Programme based in Leipzig, Germany and its citizen science project Chimp&See. We are also fortunate enough to have longstanding working collaborations with multiple great ape field sites in Africa.
