The Archie Lab – Behavioral Ecology at Notre Dame

The Archie lab studies the evolution of social behavior, especially the links between social behavior, health, disease risk, and survival. To answer our research questions, we work with long-term studies of wild mammals. Our main focus is on the wild baboon population living in the Amboseli Ecosystem in Kenya. Most recently, we’ve been working to understand the genetic and disease-related causes and consequences of social relationships and behavior.
