Katie McGuire
Anthropology Lead
Lead Graduate Fellow 2021-22

I am Ph.D. candidate who approaches the question of “Why are animals social?” by investigating how individual variation impacts social behavior. My current work explores how ring-tailed lemur individual variation influences social skills and competence in a population of lemurs on St. Catherines Island, Georgia. Having primarily taught biology-based labs, I aim to bring high enthusiasm and passion to my teaching as a way to engage students and promote inquiry in any classroom setting. I also aspire to make science more approachable for students through my teaching.
