I have worked with many different types of animals from rodents to primates studying neuroscience and cognitive psychology. For my master’s thesis, I focused on how injury affects cognition in cuttlefish and found learning changed depending on the location of the injury. These experiences shaped my scientific interest to how animal behavior can be used to understand and improve welfare. At UC Davis, I seek to continue studying how injury affects cognition, specifically in dairy cattle.
