My name is Alice Baniel (she/her/hers). I am a postdoctoral fellow advised by Dr. Snyder-Mackler at ASU and Dr. Amy Lu at Stony Brook University. I am broadly interested in life history strategies, sexual selection, developmental plasticity, and parental care in primates. Currently, I study the causes and consequences of premature weaning in wild geladas, focusing on the link between early life condition and gut microbial composition. I completed my PhD in 2016 at the University of Montpellier, France. My dissertation focused on the determinants and evolutionary consequences of inter- and intra sexual conflicts over reproduction in wild chacma baboons living in the Namib desert. You can read more about my research on my google scholar page and by following me on twitter.
