COLLEEN FRIEDLY is a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Anthropology. Her research interests include the impact of nature-based "ecotourism" on the environment and the implications this has on the economic sustainability of the tourism industry. Specifically, she is interested in how human and non-human primate interactions are mediated in the context of a tourism experience and how increasing tourism development can impact the long-term survival of non-human primates and other wildlife. Through experiences gained within the Ostrom Workshop, Colleen hopes to integrate theory and methodology from a number of different disciplines to assess ecotourism development and sustainability. Colleen holds a BA in anthropology from Indiana University.
