Hi, I'm Allison! My research interest is in animal cognition and behavior with a focus on cetaceans.
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.
I currently work as a naturalist for San Francisco Whale Tours and collaborate with Golden Gate Cetacean Research to study humpbacks, gray whales, bottlenose dolphins, and harbor porpoises. In the fall of 2019 I will begin a MS in Interdisciplinary Marine and Estuarine Sciences at San Francisco State’s Estuary and Ocean Science Center.
