About Me

I am a biological anthropologist specializing in molecular primatology. My primary research areas are landscape genetics, microbiomes, conservation biology, and genomics. Currently, I am working at field sites in China (Wuliangshan) and Costa Rica (Santa Rosa) and maintain an active collaboration with The Chinese Academy of Sciences. I am trained holistically in field biology, molecular genetic lab work, and computational biology. I also handle a primate scat detection dog named Pinkerton.
