Geography Spotlight - May 2016
Gabriel Granco, doctoral candidate in geography, was honored with the James J. Parsons PhD field study award from the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG), one of only eight graduate students from the Americas to receive such an award this year.
The award will support Granco’s doctoral dissertation field work this summer in Brazil on the dynamics and impacts of sugarcane land use on biodiversity vulnerability and allow him to work with local experts in biodiversity and land change dynamics. CLAG is an international organization founded in 1970 to foster education about and research in Latin America. Granco’s major professor is Marcellus Caldas.
