Congratulations to the March Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher, Bianca Pizarro!
Bianca conducts her research in the Sociology department with Dr. Fernando Rivera. She conducts research on students in Puerto Rico and their experiences post-Maria. She has presented at several poster forums including SURF Summer Showcase, ABRCMS, and the 9th Annual Student Symposium at FOI, Croatia. Bianca plans on defending her Honors Undergraduate Thesis and publishing in the Pegasus Review later this semester. Congratulations, Bianca!
