Francisco Laso, a doctoral candidate in Geography, received the World Wildlife Fund Russell E. Train Fellowship for his dissertation research, which investigates how environmental and socio-economic factors interact in agroecosystems of the Galapagos. In this work, Francisco considers how physical, biotic, and socio-economic dimensions affect farmers’ livelihoods, invasive species, protected species, and land use. To assess this question, he combines existing information from satellite image collections, census data, ecological data, and local knowledge. Read more about Francisco’s research here.
