I am part of the first cohorts of graduate students participating in the MSU and University of Puerto Rico partnership. MSU in coordination with UPR fund Puerto Rican graduate students to take classes at MSU and conduct research in Puerto Rico on issues relevant to environmental assessment and management of the Island’s resources. Here at Michigan State University, I am part of the Center for System Integration and Sustainability in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife.
