Graduate Student Fellow

I am a graduate student in the Integrative Anthropological Sciences program. My research interests include human behavioral ecology, sexual conflict theory, parental investment, gender equality, as well as intimate partner violence. My current research focuses on understanding the variation in men’s attitudes across dimensions of women’s empowerment. I conduct field research in Mwanza region, Tanzania. I completed my undergraduate degree in Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond in 2017. Prior to enrolling at UCSB, I worked as a field researcher for Dr. Christopher von Rueden in Amazonian Bolivia, a primary investigator for Project Schoolhouse in rural Nicaragua, and a research assistant to Dr. David Lawson in Tanzania.
