Katie Feilen

Assistant Teaching Professor

Katie Feilen is a primatologist, conservation biologist, and engaged scientist. Katie received an M.A. and Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from the University of California-Davis and a B.S. in Biology and Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She uses behavior, ecology, and evolution to help understand how primates (monkeys, apes, and lemurs) adapt to changes in their environments and how we can use the scientific understanding of species to assist in their conservation. She also engages communities in conversations about climate change through art and works to increase science engagement to broad audiences.
