Previous Research: SMARTA Color Vision (Master's thesis)
My research assistants helped with (but not restricted to) my ruffed lemur color vision cognitive research at Duke Lemur Center in Durham, North Carolina. They helped ran training and testing trials, take behavioral data, as well as code behavioral videos. Research ran from Monday to Friday, in the mornings. Applicants were both undergraduate and graduate students looking for experience in cognitive research or working with captive lemurs. Some helped with my other collaborative projects such as handedness research and welfare research.
Thanks to my research assistants for helping with my research projects.
