Graduate Student (Admitted Fall 2010)
Neuroscience and Animal Behavior Program
After receiving my B.A. in Anthropology from the College of William and Mary, I spent a year and a half conducting fieldwork in Puerto Iguazu, Argentina as a research assistant for three projects which focused on different aspects of tufted capuchin behavior, including spatial memory and inter-group aggression. I recently received my M.A. for a project which investigated facial expression discrimination in captive tufted capuchins. I hope to return to the field in the near future to study relationship maintenance in species with varying degrees of fission-fusion dynamics.
