I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon. I completed my undergraduate education at Miami University and received my Bachelor's degree in anthropology, botany, environmental science, and zoology. I am broadly trained as a biologist and anthropologist and enjoy working at the intersection of these two disciplines.
I primarily study non-human primates in both captivity and the wild. My research interests include adaptation, phenotypic variation within and between populations, and the environmental, genetic, and physiological factors that help shape such differences. Additionally, I'm interested in the care, health, and management of zoo-housed primates and other taxa.
