Hi, I'm Allison! My research interest is in animal cognition and behavior with a focus on cetaceans.
I am a researcher with the Marine Mammal Center’s Cetacean Field Research team, where we study harbor porpoises, humpback whales, gray whales, and bottlenose dolphins.
I’m also a naturalist at San Francisco Whale Tours, where we collect a lot of the data we use for our projects at the Marine Mammal Center.
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.
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.
