Alumna Ashlei’s adventures in Africa

What do Parks Lab alumni do after graduation? Where do they go and what do they see? Our very own Ashlei Tinsley is a wonderful example of the exciting adventures that our students move on to after they walk the stage here at Syracuse University. Ashlei is working on spotted hyena research with the Holekamp Lab out of Michigan State University, but her work with them has taken her far from Michigan. She is currently living and working in Kenya, on the Masai Mara National Reserve.

The Holekamp blog, called Notes from Kenya, is filled with information about the long-term research they conduct on behavioral development, social interactions, and even endocrine mediation of behavior. Be sure to check it out not only for the stunning photos and research updates, but also for the posts from Ashlei herself.

Ashlei is a great example, but far from our only alumnus to go on to exciting opportunities. Check back often for more updates from past Parks Lab students!
