Together with Professor Erika Edwards (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology), Voss postdoctoral associate Radika Bhaskar, and Francisco Mora (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), Arisa plans to investigate tropical dry forest regeneration in abandoned pastureland in Jalisco, Mexico. Arisa’s ultimate goal is to understand how management can facilitate forest regeneration, and in turn contribute to sustainable land use practices.
