Master's in Environmental Studies
Education background: Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies from FIU
I am a senior masters student getting ready to defend my thesis in the fall of 2012. Over the last 3 years I have gained countless hours of experience in the production of biofuels through the Agroecology Program at FIU. As well as knowledge in the fields of sustainable agriculture, agroecology, conventional agriculture, environmental science, soil science, urban farming and organic farming. For my masters thesis I examined the use of Simarouba glauca or paradise tree as a feedstock for the production of biodiesel using a community scale production model at the University of Agriculture Science in Bangalore, India. I have also had the unique opportunity to mentor and teach several students through the Agroecology Program at FIU.
