Hi, I'm Allison! My interest is in animal cognition and behavior with a focus on cetaceans.
I am also a researcher with the Marine Mammal Center Cetacean Field Research team, where we study harbor porpoises, humpback whales, gray whales, and bottlenose dolphins. I collect much of the data for these projects while I’m working as a naturalist for San Francisco Whale Tours.
I received my undergraduate degree in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley and have worked in labs around the world studying everything from squirrels to humpbacks.
All photos are taken by and belong to me.
All photos were taken while following the guidelines for observing marine mammals.
