Profile

Position: 
Research Director
Short profile: 

Her research aims are to investigate the biology, the behavior and the cognitive capacities of capuchin monkeys within a comparative/evolutionary framework. Research has been carried out both in the CNR laboratory in Rome http://www.istc.cnr.it/primate/centre.shtml and in the Fazenda Boa Vista in Brazil
