We also want to extend a very warm welcome to Dr. Megan Ybarra, who will be joining our department in the Fall! Dr. Ybarra brings with her interests in conservation, race, and citizenship, which will greatly enhance the department! Find out more about her interests and academic history below:
I completed my PhD in Environmental Science, Policy & Management at UC Berkeley. To date, my research has focused on the articulation of conservation, race, and remilitarization in Guatemala’s Maya Forest. I am also interested in migration, borders and citizenship in the Américas.
