I am a graduate student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences. I am broadly interested in the effects of environmental and anthropogenic change on population dynamics, intergroup relations, competition, and movement ecology in nonhuman primate populations. I will study primate species in Kibale National Park in Uganda. I earned my B.Sc. in Environmental Biosciences at Trier University in Germany studying the population dynamics of endangered yellow-bellied frogs. Then, I earned my M.Sc. in Organismic Biology, Evolutionary Biology, and Paleobiology at Bonn University in Germany analyzing intergroup encounters in pair-living owl monkeys from Argentina.
