I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in biology. I study the environmental determinants of social behavior in wild and domesticated animals.
Through experiences in animal behavior, social networks, sensory physiology, environmental toxicology, entrepreneurship, and working with diverse cultures, my aim is to understand the environmental impact of physical parameters on social behavior, and develop commercializable tools, while advancing people from marginalized groups.
The goals of my research program are as follows:
• Excellence in Research: develop an extramurally-funded research
program in environmental psychology,
• Entrepreneurial Ventures: invent commercializable technologies,
• Broader Impacts: provide a strong scientific basis for human
health and conservation decisions, and
• Growing Talent: train diverse postdocs, graduates and
undergraduates in basic and applied
