Gabriela Pinho

PhD Candidate at UCLA

Gabriela Pinho is a PhD Fellow studying animal behavior and genetics at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is now using archival samples and behavioral data collected since 2003 from this free-living marmot population to investigate which environment and social conditions may increase individual aging speed, measured through epigenetic markers.

During her Masters she studied the social behavior of lowland tapirs by estimating relatedness through non invasive sampling in the Amazon. Since then she has been collaborating with the Lowland Tapir Conservation Initiative and is a member of the Genetics Committee of the IUCN/SSC Tapir Specialist Group.
