The CICASP internship was a great experience. It provided me the unique opportunity to conduct cognitive research with chimpanzees in an exceptional facility and under the guidance of experienced researchers. Just as important, I was able to be part of an international community of researchers from a variety of fields, which enriched my knowledge of primates and informed my own research.
My internship in PRI in 2015 was life changing! I participated in both laboratory and field work experiences, which provided me insights of the research “backstage” routine and work. I had the opportunity to work and learn from the world experts on Primatology and interact with young researchers with whom I could share experiences and doubts. My internship also opened the doors for my PhD project and, ultimately, my career as a researcher.
