Research Interests

My research interests involve how an animal’s ecological role influences their behavior within their respected environment and vice versa. I am specifically interested in looking at populations of endangered species to help inform conservation planning. I spent 3 months of 2017 as a research assistant on the black-and-white ruffed lemur team at the Kianjavato Ahmanson Field Station (KAFS) in Madagascar. This experience fueled my interest to start graduate school at the University of Calgary and work towards gaining a better understanding of our primate ancestors. 

We are currently working on a study dealing with the impact of food availability and reproduction on aggression in black-and-white ruffed lemurs. I plan to build on this research in the near future for my master's thesis.
