Biography: I received an MA (2003) from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a Ph.D. (2007) from West Virginia University, under the mentorship of Drs. Carol Pilgrim and Phil Chase respectively. Since 2007 I have studied animal behavior at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. Much of my work focuses on a multi-faceted conservation program for Key Largo woodrats, which has received a Bean Award for Significant Achievement in Captive Breeding from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (2009) and a Federal Challenge Grant (2010) in collaboration with the Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge for population monitoring work on Key Largo. Other projects include a study of keeper-friendly environmental enrichment evaluation techniques and the development of a zoo-wide system of animal welfare assessment. I am also the president of the Applied Animal Behavior Special Interest Group of the Association for Behavior Analysis International.
