Thanks for visiting my page!

I am an evolutionary ecologist researching the interactions between wild plants and animals and how these can be affected by human activities. My research is integrative and multi-disciplinary and combines field observations of animal foraging behavior in the tropics with diverse analytical techniques - including chemistry and spectroscopy - to quantify plant attractants and deterrents. 

I have an undergraduate degree from McGill University, a Master's degree in Primatology from University of Calgary (Linda Fedigan), and a PhD from the University of Toronto (Shawn Lehman). I am currently an assistant research professor at Duke University, in the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology.
