I am a behavioral ecologist with multidisciplinary research interests that include movement strategies, population dynamics, landscape genetics, biogeography, and responses to climate change. I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Biology Department at Duke University, working in the lab of Susan Alberts.

My current work is focused on yellow baboons (Papio cynocephalus) in the Amboseli ecosystem of East Africa. The Amboseli Baboons have been studied continuously since 1971 by the project's directors: Susan Alberts, Jeanne Altmann, Beth Archie, and Jenny Tung.

Much of my recent research involves white-faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus) in the Área de Conservación Guanacaste, a Unesco World Heritage site in northwestern Costa Rica. The capuchins at this site have been studied by my PhD advisor, Dr. Linda Fedigan, and her students since 1983.

I obtained my PhD (2014) and MA (2008) in Biological Anthropology from the University of Calgary, and my BS (2002) in Biology from Caltech.
