I am a Ph.D. student and NSF fellow advised by Dr. Patricia C. Wright and Dr. A. Catherine Markham in the Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences (IDPAS) at Stony Brook University. Broadly, I am interested in primate conservation, human-wildlife interactions, and conservation education and development. Please explore this website to learn more about my research interests and past experiences and to get in touch. You may also follow my fieldwork and research by reading Notes from the Field, checking out some fieldwork photos, or by clicking the Instagram icon at the bottom of any of these pages. Thank you for visiting!
For those of you working in fields like mine, please strive to think about how you can decolonize your efforts when partnering with indigenous colleagues.
