I am a behavioral ecologist broadly interested in the adaptive value of social relationships and how the social environment at various life history stages influences fitness outcomes.  Along with colleagues in Dr. Carson Murray’s Primate Behavioral Ecology Lab I am 1) investigating how chimpanzee social networks relate to stress and 2) characterizing maternal styles and examining how they relate to maternal stress and offspring outcomes.

Before coming to The George Washington University, I earned my PhD in Biology at Georgetown University.  Under the mentorship of Dr. Janet Mann, I examined calf social networks and the fitness consequences of early sociality in the wild bottlenose dolphins of Shark Bay, Australia.
