Graduate Student Fellow
I am a graduate student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences. I study primate population and community ecology, and am interested in how feeding competition limits energy gain in several species of monkeys in Kibale National Park, Uganda. I also work with US Geological survey, using stable isotope analysis to better understand bobcat prey preference in Southern California, and how it is affected by climate change.
I earned my B.Sc. in Ecology, Animal Behavior and Evolution, and M.Sc. in Biology from the University of California, San Diego, studying niche partitioning in two species of endangered iguanas in the Dominican Republic, in collaboration with the San Diego Zoo – Institute for Conservation Research.
