New Leadership Role

At the close of 2017 American Society of Primatologists (ASP) meeting, I will join the ASP Board of Directors as the Treasurer. My goals as an ASP Board Member are to expand ASP’s efforts to increase membership, particularly student and international memberships, and facilitate integrative exchange across the diverse fields represented by the ASP.

Two new book publications
  1. My new edited volume (co-edited with Kerry Dore and Agustin Fuentes) titled Ethnoprimatology: A Practical Guide for Research at the Human-Nonhuman Primate Interface has been published by Cambridge University Press (April 2017). It is available for purchase here or via Amazon Smile. If you use Amazon, please consider choosing American Society of Primatologists as your charity organizations; a percentage of your purchase will help support primate conservation.
  2. The 3-volume International Encyclopedia of Primatology has been published! This massive effort was led by Editor-in-Chief, Agustin Fuentes and his team of Associate Editors, which included myself. Ten former or current SDSU students are included as authors . You can purchase it here.
