Hi, I'm Allison! My research interests are in marine mammal cognition, especially toothed whales. I am a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Cognitive Science program and have worked in labs around the world studying whales. I currently work as a naturalist for San Francisco Whale Tours. I collect data from my own photos and from passengers to contribute to the work at Golden Gate Cetacean Research. I also help teach marine science family classes at the Gulf of the Farallones Marine Sanctuary. I believe ocean conservation is one of the most pressing issues facing our planet and I use my platforms to promote ocean stewardship.
All photos are taken by and belong to me.
