I'm interested in individual variation in behaviour: animal personalities. Specifically, I wish to understand the relationship between personality and the social environment. 
    I am currently trying (rather unsuccessfully) to understand why there is individual variation in cooperative behaviour in meerkats in LARG.
    I am further exploring the influence of personality in the use of social and personal information for decision-making, using the Tsaobis Baboon Project's chacma baboons as a model species.
