I am a biological anthropologist specializing in molecular primatology. My primary research areas are conservation genomics, microbiomes, and landscape genetics. I am trained holistically in field biology, molecular genetic lab work, and computational biology. My main field sites are in China (Wuliangshan) and Costa Rica (Santa Rosa), and I handle a primate scat detection dog named Pinkerton. Click on the sidebar images for more information about my work!
