I'm a 27 year old graduate student by day, roller derby girl by night. I have also been described as "the girl with kalidescope eyes", a "grammar nazi", and an "ethical slut" (woo hoo!) Okay, okay, so I've also been described as a "pain in the butt", and a "troublemaker", but we can't be perfect all the time!
The principle aim of my research is to increase our (the scientific community's) understanding of how animal cognition may have evolved via natural and sexual selection. My research uses lab based experimental approaches to assess how social context affects behavior and decision making in pinyon jays.
If that doesn't scare you, send me an email, and I'll get back to you with more details :)
My derby alter-ego is Bella Cose; I'm a blocker on team Gang Green of the No Coast Derby Girl League. I'm not as good as I'd like to be, but I'm workin' on it!
