I'm a PhD candidate in Susan Alberts' lab at Duke University. I'm most excited about questions that combine behavioral ecology, physiology, and evolution. Broadly, my research asks how early-life and adult environments - both social and physical - are associated with physiology, morphology, and behavior. I do this research using data from a population of wild baboons in Kenya observed by the Amboseli Baboon Research Project.
