Evolutionary Anthropology Ambassador


Class of 2024
Major Evolutionary Anthropology; Minor in Chemistry

I'm on the pre-med track. I am currently developing my senior thesis in Evolutionary Anthropology. I went abroad to Copenhagen last fall. I am an intern for Jewish Life at Duke, have worked in two research labs in Evolutionary Anthropology. I have also done moot court and am a patient care assistant. I am currently shadowing at the hospital as well. I love to crochet, run, and read.

Favorite Class: Primate Field Biology, got to go to the Lemur center for every class and get real field experience right here at Duke. Really unique and interesting opportunity. Also taught me to scientifically write really well.
