Dr. Georgina M. Montgomery received her PhD in the History of Science and Technology from the University of Minnesota in 2005. After teaching for two years at Montana State University, she joined Lyman Briggs College (75% appointment) and History (25% appointment) in the fall of 2008. Her research focuses on the history of field science, particularly the development of field methods and sites within primatology and animal behavior studies. Primatology is an international science and therefore her research also engages with issues of race, gender and globalization. Montgomery is interested in supervising graduate students interested in pursuing  these kind of research areas at Michigan State University.
