Jennifer Essler

I am a former undergraduate student of the Cebus Lab. During my time there, I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Sarah Brosnan and her graduate students on various studies with the capuchin monkeys. I did my undergraduate thesis studying the relative roles of cognition and ecology on decision-making behavior in capuchins. Currently, I am a graduate student in the Animal Behavior M.S. program at Bucknell University. This summer I continued a study on absolute numerosity in lion-tailed macaques, and this semester I am studying bartering and decision-making behavior in capuchins. I plan on doing more comparative work with the various species here at Bucknell.
