Amy is an interdisciplinary scholar who teaches at University of Southern California. She has studied the world’s captive population of bonobos for the last twenty-eight years. She found that the social system of the bonobo is unusual in many respects: females form real and meaningful bonds in the absence of kinship and females attack and dominate males. She was the first to characterize bonobo society as a matriarchy. She is currently interested in female mate choice decisions in humans. In all of her research, Amy uses an evolutionary, bio-cultural, feminist, and interdisciplinary approach to shed light on the origins of human behavior.
