We are students in the Animal Behavior Graduate Group at UC Davis.
Grace Davis studies the behavioral ecology of wild primates in Africa and Central America. Previously, she has worked with migrating Monarch butterflies, territorial lizards, and Burmese Python heart DNA. She is a graduate student in evolutionary anthropology at UC Davis, focusing her research on primate collective ecology, group decision making, modeling of social behavior, and foraging strategies.
Kelly Finn is interested in the intersection of complexity science and animal behavior, specifically in fractal-like patterns in individual behavior sequences and social network structure. Her current research involves rhesus macaques, but she has previously studied a variety of species, from tadpoles to elephants.
Aaron Haiman is a long time student of birds. He has followed this passion to study the conservation and ecology of raptors, songbirds, and hummingbirds across North America. His current research is focusing on how behavioral differences between populations can influence speciation, particularly in nomadic species.
Ryane Logsdon is interested in sexual selection, cooperative, and altruistic behaviors. She has researched display behavior in Anolis lizards, cognition in American Crows, and is currently studying mating behavior on the lekking Greater Sage Grouse.
Tez Stair studies social animals of all kinds, and is currently investigating the reproductive strategies of female Wood Ducks (Aix sponsa). Tez earned his BS and BA at The Evergreen State College, in Washington State, and previously worked as an English teacher in the South Korean city of Gwangju.
