I graduated from Washington State University Vancouver with a BA in Anthropology and a minor in psychology. Subsequently, I studied tamarin sensory ecology in the Peruvian Amazon with Field Projects International, and then spent a year working at the Human Relations Area Files at Yale University. In my future research, I would like to develop a comparative, methodologically diverse research program to elucidate the natural history of toxin regulation in the primate lineage.
