Kimberly Burke

Lab Manager

In 2014, I joined the Living Links Center as a research specialist. My duties include managing our three groups of chimpanzees, and observational studies and behavioral tests of their social cognition.

Since graduating from Centre College in 2008 with a BS in Psychology I have completed multiple internships at zoos and sanctuaries. During these internships I completed various behavioral and cognitive research with three species of Great Apes (chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans) and with Black-and-White Ruffed Lemurs. Most recently I interned at Zoo Atlanta where I completed my Master's thesis research on metacognition in gorillas and lemurs.
