Fabiana Figueiro Spinelli

Alumni of Miami University
I am a trained field primatologist and conservation biologist, primarily interested in the intersection of conservation biogeography, policy-making, and public outreach to protect endangered species of primates. My most recent research project at Miami University focused on the biogeography of the proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) of Borneo. I used a combination of fieldwork, GIS, digital maps and species distribution modeling techniques to study the influence of environmental variables on the distribution of the proboscis monkey. The ultimate goal of this study was to predict suitable areas for the species and provide policy-makers in Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia, with a model that can aid conservation action in Borneo. In addition to my studies, I have worked with international organizations such as the Commission for Environmental Cooperation of North America and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity on a variety of policy-making and public outreach projects.
