Description
Meet Meg Crofoot, a primate researcher on Barro Colorado Island at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama. Meg studies intergroup competition in white‐faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus) by tracking them through radio telemetry collars and observing their behaviors. After acquiring her degrees at Stanford and then Harvard, Meg continues to serve as a post‐doctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, as well as at STRI, and also teaches in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University.
