Julia Cancro, Greenfield Lab

Julia is currently studying at Rutgers University, where she is majoring in Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources with a minor in Marine Sciences. In her future research endeavors, Julia hopes to analyze how anthropogenic stressors affect vertebrates residing within the intertidal zone, both behaviorally and physiologically. Her interest in studying animal behavior and physiology stems from her work as a zookeeper and veterinary technician. As a zookeeper, Julia was responsible for training, feeding, and creating enrichment for animals, including macaws, horses, marmosets, bison, capybaras, and alligators. While working as a veterinary technician, she learned how to administer vaccines and medications to cats and dogs. In her free time, Julia enjoys hiking, dancing, visiting museums, and listening to music.
