I am a graduate student in the Integrate Anthropological Sciences. I study the behavioral ecology of primates. My research interests include social variation within and across populations, behavioral syndromes and their roles in group dynamics, and the coevolution of vocal communication and sociality.
I earned a B.S. in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology and a B.S. in Evolutionary Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, where I studied the behavioral syndromes and movement ecology of several species of lizards. I have also contributed to a number of projects by studying the demography of vulnerable species to better inform conservation efforts.
