I am currently a PhD student in Environmental Science at Concordia University in Montreal. My doctoral research focuses on the behavioural flexibility and ecology of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). I graduated from Concordia University in 2018, with a BSc Honours with distinction in Environmental Science, and a minor in Mathematics and Statistics. Although my PhD research is primarily based on primate behaviour, I have been actively involved in climate science communication as one of the founding members of the Concordia Climate Emergency Committee. The rate at which the Earth is changing with climate change and other human-induced environmental pressures is of great concern to me. My research will potentially improve our overall knowledge of how behaviour is affected by physical impairment, external environmental factors, and how animals can respond and react to changes in condition and in times of environmental uncertainty.
