I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Psychology Department at UC Berkeley, working with Dr. Lucia Jacobs. My research interests include decision-making in the scatter-hoarding fox squirrel and the relationship between people and their companion animals. I'm deeply interested in how pets and urban wildlife can promote public interest in science.
I am a co-owner of the cat behavior consulting business, Feline Minds. I also co-run two websites: one on enrichment for cats using foraging puzzles, called Food Puzzles For Cats, and a website for punks in academia called PhdPunx.
In my free time, I DJ at Berkeley's radio station KALX and obsess over: my cats, reading dystopian novels, baseball, vegetarian food and my bicycle.
