The Social Science Speaker Series is proud to host Dr. Crickette Sanz to discuss her work with primates in the Congo Basin!
Crickette M. Sanz is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Washington University in Saint Louis. She is co-PI of the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project in the Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park, Republic of Congo. The project was initiated in 1999 to enhance our knowledge of sympatric apes (central chimpanzees and western lowland gorillas) in the Congo Basin and use this information to increase their conservation status. Her research focuses on primate behavioral ecology and cognition, the evolution of sociality, ecosystem health and emerging diseases, and climate change. Sanz’s recent works have been published in the American Journal of Primatology, Behaviour, Journal of Human Evolution, and Scientific Reports. She also co-edited Tool Use in Animals: Cognition and Ecology (Cambridge University Press 2013).
