I'm a postdoctoral scholar in the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at University of California San Francisco. I completed my undergraduate education at Miami University and received my Bachelor's degree in anthropology, botany, environmental science, and zoology. My graduate work was conducted at the University of Oregon, where I received my Master of Science and PhD in anthropology. I am broadly trained as a biologist and anthropologist and enjoy working at the intersection of these two disciplines.
My current research focuses on understanding evolutionary processes, particularly adaptation and introgression, in humans and non-human primates. I also study variation in the behavior and ecology of non-human primates. Finally, I'm interested in the care, health, and management of zoo-housed primates and other taxa.
