AJ Hardie


Graduate Student


Biological Anthropology

AJ is broadly interested in diet, energetics, and endocrinology. Their central research question is how primates compensate, behaviorally and physiologically, for seasonal changes in preferred food availability. They conducted dissertation fieldwork in southeastern Brazil studying the behavior of brown howler monkeys (Alouatta guariba) and they are also investigating hormonal mechanisms of energy regulation in Central and South American monkeys at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center. AJ is a member of the Strier Lab, working under the supervision of Dr. Karen B. Strier.
