Caitlin Eschmann is a PhD student at the University of Bristol. She received a BSc in Biology and Neuroscience from Gettysburg College, an MSc in Primate Conservation from Oxford Brookes University, and an MSc in Teaching Adolescence Biology/Conservation Life Sciences from Fordham University.
Over the years she has followed two discrete, yet undeniably related, paths—one concentrating on scientific research and the other focusing on public action and education. This has led her to Sri Lanka to study the purple-faced leaf monkey, to South Africa and Zambia to work in primate sanctuaries, and to NYC to create science curricula that is as engaging as it is educational. It is her current aim to incorporate these disciplines more holistically as she continues on her professional journey in the remote forests of Madagascar.
