Division of Social & Behavioral Sciences
I have been teaching college Anthropology courses since 2008. I have taught Biological Anthropology lecture and Laboratory, Primatology, and Cultural Anthropology courses at: UC San Diego, MiraCosta College, Palomar College, and Saddleback College. I am also a Biological Anthropology graduate student at UC San Diego. My dissertation research is on chimpanzee social behavior, and I spent 15 months living in Uganda following wild chimpanzees through the forest in Kibale National Park. I have also studied studied the bonobos at the San Diego Safari Park, macaque monkeys in Sulawesi Indonesia, and gorillas at the Albuquerque Zoo in New Mexico. I have also searched for primate fossils while doing paleoanthropology research in New Mexico and Colorado.
