Cassi is a second year PhD student in the Biology and Society program on the Ecology, Economics, and Ethics of the Environment track. Her interest in animals, conservation psychology, ethology, and human perceptions of human-animal interactions led her to ASU. She is advised by Dr. Ben Minteer and aims to incorporate animal behavior, human perceptions of animals, and conservation psychology into her PhD project. 

Previous to coming to ASU, Cassi graduated from Eckerd College with a BA in Psychology and International Relations. Immediately following graduation, she worked and volunteered in a variety of animal-related contexts including a local animal shelter, two therapeutic horse-back riding centers, and three different zoological facilities. Most recently she was the Animal Behavior Research Assistant at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
