I’m a recent PhD graduate from Dr. Kay Holekamp’s lab at Michigan State University with a dual degree in Integrative Biology (formerly Zoology) and Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Behavior (EEBB). This September, I am starting a Postdoctoral Fellowship with Eric Vander Wal and the Wildlife Evolutionary Ecology Lab (WEEL), so keep an eye out for updates as I get started. My doctoral work focuses on spotted hyena social behavior in Kenya.
My undergraduate degrees in Biology and History were completed at Grinnell College in Iowa. I’m broadly interested in the social behaviors of group living animals, personality, and conservation.
