I'll be in Tai National Park in Cote d'Ivoire doing my dissertation research for the next year - I won't be around much, but you can keep track of me at my blog, The Great Blue Erin
I'm a PhD student in physical anthropology at The Ohio State University studying ecology, behavior, and endocrinology of African monkeys (especially guenons and mangabeys). My PhD project will be looking at health and dietary consequence of competition between and within Diana monkey
groups ... I work primarily in Tai National Park, Cote d'Ivoire.
I'm interested in the intersections between diet and behavior, community ecology, and predation, and I've realized I have a growing interest in connecting morphology to behavior. I'm also interested in conservation, particularly as it relates to equatorial African politics and development. And the Muppets, women in science, and progressive politics.
When I'm not being a grad student, I'm feeling guilty about doing something that isn't being a grad student.
