Forest Monkey Tales

This section will contain short stories, mainly my own observations with some known information of the monkeys in the story. A new story will be published once every week.

Also, I will share some of the challenges that I had faced as a woman researcher in a male dominated area.

Other stories are about some of the questions I’m still trying to answer. Some other stories are lessons I learned from being an independent researcher for many years and the challenges to keep my project going while I travel and study abroad.

Most are my personal points of view of what have work for me and can work for others, although there are many ways in which you can do research without making the same decisions and mistakes that I had done.

Some stories will try to answer biological questions, but others are about my personal life and the way I see life and how I value mine. So please don’t take anything too personal as it is just one way of see and experience life and research.

Some will ask why I decide to tell these stories now. I don’t have an answer, I guess this idea has been in my mind for a while and I feel that may be sharing some of my observations and experiences in the field I can empower other women to do research and follow their passion even when situations don’t seem the right or easy ones.
