Research

I am a biological anthropologist studying the social behavior, development, and physiology of wild primates. I am interested in how early life experiences impact development and contribute to variation in sociality, reproduction, and health in adulthood. My dissertation research focuses on early life adversity, maternal effects, and developmental trajectories in a population of wild olive baboons in Laikipia, Kenya. My postdoctoral research examines the links between early life adversity and aging across multiple biological domains in rhesus macaques at Cayo Santiago.

Funding

My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF-SMA-2105307, NSF-BCS-1732172, NSF-GRFP-1841051), the Leakey Foundation, and Arizona State University.
