Elsa Yeung Student Profile

Elsa Yeung

I grew up in Dallas, TX but have been living in Massachusetts for the past 3 years, completing a Masters in biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. My thesis on animal behavior explored the cognitive abilities of zebra finches. My undergraduate degree was in ecology, evolution, and behavior at the University of Texas at Austin. In the past, I have worked at the Dallas zoo, several animal clinics and shelters, and research labs. I am interested in the intersection between ecology and human public health (One Health) and also in improving practices in the U.S. food industry.
