I Fucking Love Science Meets: Me!

I was approached by IFLScience to do an interview-style blog on my career journey into primatology. First charmed to the order of animals by a miscommunication between myself and a macaque, I now specialise in gibbons including the Hainan gibbon, the rarest primate in the world. Here, I tell IFLScience that while working with primates might not involve all that much interaction with animals (at least, not on purpose), you do sometimes find yourself running after hose-wielding orangutans!
