I received my Ph.D. in biological anthropology from Boston University in May 2013. My dissertation research focused on the reproductive endocrinology, behaviors, and life history pattern of orangutans, and what this information can reveal about the evolution of human reproductive and life history characteristics.
I was teaching faculty in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University from 2013-2018. For the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be teaching in the Anthropology department at Tufts University.
I started this blog to write about anthropological and evolutionary topics, to share my experiences within the world of academia (both as student and professor), and to connect to other modern-day naturalists.
DISCLAIMER: The opinions expressed on The Tinkering Primate are solely mine and are not necessarily shared by my research collaborators or the academic departments with which I’m affiliated. But I like to think the orangutans agree with me.
