Research Interests: I am primarily interested in determining the role zoological institutions play in mediating the human/environment relationship, specifically in urban settings. In addition, I am interested in exploring the role these institutions play in the global conservation movement. Related interests include primate conservation, urban conservation and ecology, environmental policy, informal education, ecotourism, and human/animal relationships.

Thesis Topic: The Influence of Interactive Informal Education Programs on Zoo Visitor Attitudes and Conservation-Oriented Behaviors at The San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium

Advisor: Dr. Jamon Halvaksz

Degrees: B.A. Anthropology, The Ohio State University (2010)
