Paula Pebsworth, Primatologist
About This Episode
Paula Pebsworth landed her first research job by emailing and asking one question, "Can I volunteer my time to help you?" This got her working with some of her research idols and led to her study of geophagy, a self-medicating behavior where primates will eat clay to alleviate GI symptoms.
Paula has traveled the world doing her research and witnessed beautiful moments in nature. From Madagascar to Japan, Paula is a go-getter who values finding a way to help reduce human-wildlife conflict in the world.
If you're inspired by Paula's work, you can read her research papers online. And, if you’d like to reach out to Paula, you can email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Paula is currently in India undergoing another research project and can be slow to respond.
