PhD Candidate, Michigan State University
David first got interested in wildlife conservation and behavioral ecology while pursuing his undergraduate degree. During that time, he had the opportunity to work on a remote island in the Gulf of California studying California sea lions, and learned a great deal about the importance of behavior in conservation. This passion led me to the Mara in the spring of 2009, working with Dr. Holekamp as a Research Assistant. In 2010, David formally joined the lab as a PhD student.
