Assistant Professor Roberta Salmi has been working with the producers of the latest two movies in the Planet of the Apes franchise, using her primatology fieldwork and research to provide authenticity to the movies’ gorilla portrayals. She’s shared recorded gorilla calls along with context and behaviors for these sounds. Here’s an interview in the Red & Black, the most informative article on her role in the films. http://bit.ly/2v2aQKV

My research involves elements of social-ecological sustainability and looks at how a plurality of human values interact in the context of biodiversity conservation and sustainable livelihoods in changing climates. Specifically, I’m interested in how humans interact with nature and enact social-ecological values in relation to themselves, others, and the surrounding environment.
