about me

VivekVI am broadly interested in primate evolutionary ecology, particularly in foraging behavior and dietary adaptations. I do my work in two study systems: first, I study the foraging ecology of tropical rainforest hunting and gathering populations in Uganda and Malaysia. Second, I study the behavioral ecology of gelada monkeys in the Ethiopian highlands through the Guassa Gelada Research Project.

I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at Dartmouth College.

I am also the vice-president and co-founder of the Dartmouth Beekeeping Association.
