Alexandra Sacco
Associate Research Scientist

Alex Sacco was with us in the field in 2016, 2017, and again in 2018. She began by taking a field course and joining our ongoing Wildlife Monitoring program, then later she became a field manager and a collaborating PI to conduct her Master’s research. To this day she is still a vital part of the FPI team, although now you are more likely to find her doing data analysis and writing.

Since her time in the field, she has finished a Master’s in Primate Behavior and Ecology at Central Washington University, and has recently enrolled as a PhD student in Biological Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis.
