Her present work examines the developing gastrointestinal microbiome as it relates to dietary transitions in nutritionally constrained hominoids. Emma's dissertation work is supported by research grants from the National Science Foundation, Wenner-Gren Foundation, Explorer's Club, and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
