I'm a graduate student in the Department of Anthropology. I hold Bachelor degrees in Anthropology, Botany, Environmental Science, and Zoology. Most recently, I received my Master's degree in Anthropology at the University of Oregon. As a biological anthropologist, I study primates to better understand the evolution of human social and mating systems and contribute to primate conservation efforts. My research interests include primate life history and reproductive strategies, molecular ecology, and the evolution of sociality. My current research projects include a genetic analysis of wild bonobos, the efficacy of female mate choice in ring-tailed lemurs, and the abundance, demography, and sociality of African forest elephants.
