As a senior behavioral neuroscience major involved in the Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment, my main academic interest is primate cognition and behavior. Throughout the summer of 2020, I served as a research assistant for Dr. Ammie Kalan, a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. I watched 111 camera trap videos of chimpanzees taking part in a stone-throwing behavior. I coded the videos for behavioral information and then rewatched them in order to identify individual chimpanzees. In the end, I identified 26 individual chimpanzees and produced two functional datasets.
