Cognitive ecology, behavioral ecology, urban ecology
I have a Master's degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Ohio University, and my thesis explored intraspecific differences in cognitive traits in swordtail fish (Xiphophorus multilineatus). I am currently a PhD student and my research utilizes cognitive test batteries given to wild raccoons (Procyon lotor) to explore the behavioral and cognitive traits that influence raccoons' frequency of human conflict, female mate choice and fecundity, their ability to cope with complex social environments, and their adaptation to life in the city.
Outside of work I enjoy riding horses, training my dogs, and making pottery.
