I'm a graduate student in the Department of Anthropology. I hold Bachelor degrees in Anthropology, Botany, Environmental Science, and Zoology. I completed my Master's degree in Anthropology here at the University of Oregon. As a biological anthropologist, I study primates to better understand recent human evolution. My research interests focus on social behavior and the underlying genetics and physiological mechanisms that faciliate these behaviors. Currently, my research projects include the behavior and ecology of wild bonobos and the genetics of African forest elephants.
