research interests:

Andy is a PhD student with Nayuta Yamashita. He studies two sympatric lemur species in a Southwestern Madagascar dry forest with different feeding behavior. Isolating and sequencing the microbial community found in the feces of these two lemurs will identify the digestive processes occurring within their gastrointestinal tracts. These processes can then be correlated to their dietary choices and the plant defenses that these lemurs need to cope with.
