Olivia Ferrari receives a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Award


Congratulations to Olivia Ferrari, Anthropology and ICON PhD student, on receiving a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) award for her project, "Socio-ecological Borderlands at Medellin’s Periphery: Spaces of Multispecies Opportunity." In her research, Ferrari focuses on how humans, birds, and green infrastructure interact to shape Medellín, Colombia’s urban periphery. Through interviews, mapping, and bird monitoring, Ferrari will explore how these actors co-produce socially and ecologically complex landscapes at the city's edge. Congratulations again, Olivia!
