Krista Milich is a primate behavioral ecologist and socioendocrinologist with a particular interest in reproductive physiology and sexual selection.

Prior to joining the anthropology faculty in 2017, Krista Milich held a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Texas at Austin. Her work aims to not only understand the proximate and ultimate mechanisms associated with the evolution of primate social systems, but also to use that knowledge to inform primate conservation efforts. Her current work also includes studying Zika virus and the gut microbiome.
