Laboratory Manager

Years in Lab: 2014-present

I received my Bachelors’ Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Davis. My first experience at the California National Primate Research Center (CNPRC) was examining individual social behavior in the outdoor field corrals. I have since continued to work extensively studying individual differences in temperament, with an emphasis on early development. I have been with the Capitanio Lab for over twenty years and am currently managing all aspects of the lab at the CNPRC. Over the years, I have contributed to numerous research projects examining temperament as predictors of future outcomes. I have worked with Dr. Parker examining naturally occurring social impairments in rhesus macaques as a model for autism spectrum disorder since 2014.
