Here is the topic of her thesis:

“Multi-modal communication in male wild chimpanzees, influence of the hierarchy”

For my Master’s Project, I’m looking at the multimodal system of communication between male chimpanzees. Potentially relevant factors within a wild community are the age, sex, and social rank of the signaller, as well as the complexity of the social interactions. I am interested to see if the hierarchy has an effect on the communication between males. My goal is to compare the uni- and multi-modal communication of different males, and the frequency of gestures or vocalizations. The prediction is that the use of different modes of communication will be dependant on their social position within the group.
