Biography and Research Interests :
My work with primates began when I was an undergraduate at University of Oregon, and my original undergraduate research project, “Male Dominance Hierarchies and Subsequent Female Preference: Preliminary Study for the Efficacy of Mate Choice in St.Catherines Island Ring-Tailed Lemurs” focused on a troop of free-ranging ring-tailed lemurs on St. Catherines Island, Georgia, USA. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I became Dr. Frances White’s research assistant, and I collected behavioral data during the mating season in October-November in 2010, and again in 2012 to accumulate a robust data set on the breeding activities of the ring-tailed lemurs.
Since joining the Deparment of Anthropology at University of Texas Austin in 2013, my master's research has focused on female feeding competition in Verreaux's sifaka, an endangered lemur of Madagascar.
