 Research Interests
The main focus of Anthony Di Fiore's research program is on understanding the diversity of wild primate social systems and the factors influencing primate community structure and coexistence. To this end, Di Fiore directs long-term behavioral and ecological field research on multiple taxa in the primate community of Amazonian Ecuador, investigating the ways in which environmental conditions and the strategies of conspecifics together shape individual behavior and social relationships and, ultimately, determine the kinds of societies we see primates living in. His research program complements these field studies with genetic and genomic labwork to study aspects of animal social systems and ecology that are typically difficult to explore through observational studies alone, including questions about dispersal behavior, gene flow, mating patterns, population structure, and the fitness consequences of individual behavior. Additionally, in collaboration with colleagues from across South and Central America, Di Fiore also uses genetic and genomic data to investigate broader questions concerning the evolutionary history and phylogeography of various South American primates. Beyond his field- and laboratory-based research, Di Fiore also is interested comparative phylogenetic studies, statistical programming, agent-based simulation modeling, and physical computing. ~ ~
