Tessa is a PhD student in Biological Anthropology. Her research focuses on interactions between primates and endocrine-disrupting chemicals in their environment. Tessa conducts her fieldwork at Kibale National Park, Uganda, combining methods in ecology, toxicology, remote sensing, and environmental chemistry to understand how land use change is linked to primate exposure of anthropogenic pollutants, and the ecological and evolutionary implications of these interactions.
