Allison Kaufman

Meet Dr. Allison!

This is the first time Dr. Allison has used her "title" outside teaching college, but she decided its important for kids - especially girls - to meet women who have earned PhDs - and to know that you can earn a PhD and still work with animals! Dr. Allison isn't a medical doctor, she's the type of doctor that does scientific research.

Marine mammals are Dr. Allison's favorite, and right now she works with and researches seals, sea lions and beluga whales. But she's worked at lots of places and studied lots of different animals and is super excited to teach you about them. Dr. Allison has two boys, two dogs, three rats, and an African Grey Parrot. Her Best Friend, Dr. Genet, is an entomologist (a scientist who studies insects) who often drops in on class!
