Join us on Wednesday, April 14th at 4:45pm EST for the Teen Science Cafe: Agriculture, Wildlife, and Conservation in the Galapagos Islands with Doctoral Candidate in Geography Francisco Laso!
Doctoral Candidate Laso will discuss how his project uses an interdisciplinary approach to explore how agriculture and conservation can be allies in supporting farmer livelihoods, controlling invasive species, and protecting endemic species in the Galapagos. Please register in advance here:
Francisco will receive his Ph.D. in Geography from UNC Chapel Hill but his background is in ecology and evolution. He has worked in the Galapagos in education and conservation projects for the past decade. Francisco is interested in mixed-methods and participatory approaches to studying human-environment interactions, especially in subjects that can help make our food systems more sustainable.
