Joseph Feldblum

I’m a biological anthropologist studying the behavior and social structure of chimpanzees, working with the ongoing 58-year study of the chimpanzees of Gombe National Park, Tanzania. I investigate the forces shaping social relationships and social structure in our closest relatives, and am interested in applying insights from the study of chimpanzee behavior to better understand the evolution of human social behavior.
