CHES Undergraduate Affiliate Alumnus, John, or as he's known among us here, JP Calcitrai (Rutgers Class of 2018) was just admitted to the PhD Program in Animal Behavior at the University of California, Davis. JP will commence his PhD career next Fall, working under the supervision of Jeff Schank in the Psychology Department. JP is interested in better understanding the evolution of complex social systems. He will combine the computational methods used by Schank's lab with a field-based approach inspired, in part, by his participation in two field schools run by CHES faculty, the Primatology, Wildlife Ecology and Conservation in Kenya (the source of this photo of JP with a local nonhuman inhabitant) and the Primates, Ecology, and Conservation in Indonesia. While he was here at Rutgers, JP was a recipient of the CHES Barry C. Lembersky Undergraduate Research Award to support his Senior Honors Thesis Research on "Stress and Sociality in Wild Bornean Orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii). Congratulations JP!
