Ashly N. Romero, MA
I am a PhD student at the University of Arkansas in the Terhune Lab where I am investigating how primates have evolved to stabilize development in response to stress. Before graduate education, I completed my Bachelor's degree at California State University, Long Beach in southern California before moving to Arkansas for graduate school. While at CSULB, I researched the correlation between cognitive ability and morphological defenses in mammals. Post-baccalaureate, I completed my Master's degree at the University of Arkansas in May 2018 where I compared skeletal craniofacial fluctuating asymmetry in western lowland gorillas and central chimpanzees. My favorite part of my work is traveling to museums around the world to collect data, though fieldwork is a close second.
