New paper in iScience
I'm excited to announce that my first senior-author paper has been published in iScience! This paper was led by amazing PhD student, Melissa Pavez-Fox. In it we explore two pathways by which sociality can influence survival. Our findings suggest that being high ranking and well socially connected can prevent individuals from being injured, thereby increasing survival. Sociality did not, however, prevent individuals from dying following an injury. This study provides rare insight into one mechanism that can mediate the well-known benefits of sociality on an individual's fitness.

Hi, I'm Erin. I'm a scientist and nature lover. I also love to write, and although I don't find much time for informal, creative writing lately, I will try to use this space to indulge that passion a little.
