My undergraduate research career was spent studying various aspects of marine mammal behavior, chiefly acoustic and social behavior. While pursuing this research, I had the brief opportunity to study dolphin cognition. This was enough to pique my interest in this particular area of research and I have decided to further explore this area during my graduate studies, this time studying primates. In particular, I am interested in the topics of behavioral economics, reciprocity, and cooperation and look forward to exploring these topics in capuchin monkeys.
