Ritika Sibal of the Knott Lab is this year’s recipient of the Master’s Merit Scholarship for continuing MS students. This scholarship is awarded to a current MS student who stands out in their studies.

Ritika is a second-year master’s student in the Knott Primate Ecology and Conservation Lab. During her undergraduate career at the University of Michigan, Ritika used machine learning to analyze and interpret bottlenose dolphin swimming patterns. For her Master’s research, she continues to study movement by using computer vision and thermal imaging to quantitatively characterize orangutan locomotion. This summer, she will be traveling to Indonesia to conduct her fieldwork. In her free time, Ritika enjoys taking long walks with her dog while sipping on Boba tea.

Congratulations, Ritika!
