PhD Student, University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia
I am a behavioral ecologist with a passion for marine mammals and a focus in social evolution. I received my B.A. in Biology and Environmental Studies with a minor in Psychology from Connecticut College in 2010. Following my graduation, I spent two years traveling and completing an assortment of behavioral ecology research internships working on species such as the Florida manatee, great white sharks, and varying species of dolphins and whales. In 2013, I graduated from the University of St Andrews, Scotland with masters of research (M.Res) in Marine Mammal Science. Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia working under Dr. Celine Frère on the social plasticity of female bottlenose dolphins in Shark Bay, Western Australia.
