About the speaker and workshop facilitator

Dr. Renata Gonçalves Ferreira is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, where she runs the Co-Lab, Studies on Co-existence (formerly the Individual Differences and Social Strategies Lab (IDSS)). The work developed at the IDSS seeks to examine behavioral strategies depending on individual factors (temperament, sex, age and species) and proximal factors (e.g,. food availability). Dr. Ferreira works with capuchin monkeys (Sapajus spp) and horses (Equus spp), studying social life and individual differences, focussing on three main areas of investigation: 1. Eco-physiology of capuchin monkeys in altered environments; 2. Collective movements and decisions; 3. Stress coping strategies.
