Her field work on Tibetan macaques has made her one of the world’s foremost experts on that species. Additionally, Sheeran has undertaken extensive field research in China, spending some 40 months over the past 27 years in that country. Her work has garnered international recognition for the quality and credibility of her research, resulting in her being named associate editor of a prestigious scholarly journal (Scientific Reports)."
