Klaree attended The Ohio State University for her undergraduate work and graduated with Bachelor of Science degrees in Zoology and Primate Cognition (with research distinction). In addition, she worked for several years as the project Manager for Ohio State University’s Chimpanzee Center where research was conducted on tool use, social learning, vocalizations, and theory of mind. Her current research interests include the evolution of social systems in primates; conflict between male and female behavioral strategies and subsequent resolution mechanisms; the function and expression of aggressive behavior in males and the evolution of competition repression behavior. She will be traveling to the Lomako forest in the DRC to conduct fieldwork on wild bonobos.
