Me llamo Eva (eh-bah), and I am a biological anthropologist in training.
My primary research interest involves primate dietary variation in response to environmental changes (anthropogenic/ climate change). More specifically, I am interested in how primates dietarily adapt to climate and anthropogenic-induced habitat loss, using tools like stable isotope analysis on soft and hard tissue.
In both an academic and social sphere, I am always passionate about identifying and combating inequality around me. I aim to continue to actively help, learn, educate, promote, fight, and work towards a more decolonized anthropology and more equitable spaces both within academia and out.
