I focus on the behaviour, ecology, taxonomy and conservation of nocturnal mammals. I work mainly in Asia, where I have conducted research in 12 countries. I am a long-standing member of the Nocturnal Primate Research Group and Director of the Little Fireface Project, a charity and research project that works to conserve understudied obscure nocturnal mammals. The main countries where I have conducted my work are India (slow and slender lorises); Sri Lanka (langurs, macaques, slender lorises, civets, small cats); Cambodia (pygmy slow lorises) and Indonesia, where I now run a long-term project on the Critically Endangered slow loris. Topics of my work have included: evolution of venom in mammals, thermoregulation in slow lorises, evolution of exudativory in primates, and using morphology to distinguish species.
