I am a PhD candidate in Biological Anthropology at New York University in the Primate Reproductive Ecology and Evolution research group. I am also affiliated with the New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology (NYCEP), a multi-institutional doctoral training program in New York City. My research is generally centered in sexual selection and communication. I study the evolution of reproductive strategies in primates, with a particular emphasis on sexual signals. I address my research questions through a combination of behavioral observations of primates in the field with endocrinology, genetics, and digital measurements of morphology.
My PhD dissertation focuses on sexual selection in Kinda baboons, and is in collaboration with the Kasanka Baboon Project.
