U-Research: Maddie Zimmerly

Maddie Zimmerly


I am a Zoology major at The Ohio State University. I started my undergraduate career at the University of Toledo, but transferred here to seek more research opportunities. During Autumn 2017, I took Dr. Benderlioglu’s Behavioral Ecology Research class and was invited to be a research assistant the following semester. I am currently researching dominance hierarchies in the Columbus Zoo’s bonobo population. My travels to South Africa and Utah have furthered my interests in conservation and wildlife research.
