My research focuses on maternal strategies to improve infant survival in wild Ugandan chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes). From identifying potential fathers with "good genes" to behavioural stategies which mitigate the risk of infanticide and day to day mothering behaviour, I aim to build a cohesive picture of maternal behaviour within the chimpanzee's complex social system.
