John (but you can call him Jack) is a rising senior at St. Lawrence University, majoring in Conservation Biology. He’s incredibly excited for the opportunity to work with FPI on his first field research excursion. With little prior research experience, John hopes his time studying Primate Community Disease Ecology proves to be valuable step in a career of primate studies. Hailing from Rochester, NY, John grew up with a profound interest in the natural sciences and knew from a young age that he wanted to work with animals. His other interests include attempting to learn French, and university theatre.
