I'm a graduate student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon. I completed my undergraduate education at Miami University and hold Bachelor degrees in anthropology, botany, environmental science, and zoology. Most recently, I completed my Master's degree at the University of Oregon in anthropology. I am broadly trained as a biologist and anthropologist and enjoy working at the intersection of these two disciplines.
I study non-human primates in both captivity and the wild. My research interests focus on social behavior and primate reproductive strategies. Additionally, I'm interested in the care and management of zoo-housed primates and other taxa, focusing particularly on well-being.
