I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University, and member of the Drea Lab. My research interests focus on the evolution of social and mating behavior, with a particular emphasis on hormonal mechanisms. I’m a big believer in the value of interdisciplinary perspectives–my work combines methods from social psychology, comparative neuroscience, ethology, and evolutionary biology. Currently, I’m working on an NSF-funded project that investigates the role of oxytocin in the evolution of lemur social behavior.
