She earned her B.A. in Biological Anthropology from the University of California, San Diego, and her M.A. in Biology from Miami University through the Advanced Inquiry Program. Her background is in wildlife behavioral ecology and conservation, primarily focusing on primates. As an undergrad, she studied abroad in Kenya on a primatology field school where she piloted research on the feeding ecology of Tana River red colobus monkeys (Procolobus rufomitratus), and as a graduate student, she focused on the implications of disease risk from tourism and research on the conservation of gorilla species. As a graduate of AIP herself, Rhiannon loves being able to use her passion for wildlife and public engagement to give back by supporting students on their own journey through graduate school and in reaching their professional goals.
