Francina Simonpietri

Francina is presently finishing her B.A. in Sustainability and the Environment at FIU. She is helping our Aldo Farah's work on examining the implications of river fragmentation caused by hydroelectric dams. She is focused on facilitating awareness on the importance of river connectivity for tropical fish populations. Through this she hopes to launch off in bridging a gap between the scientific and non-scientific community for the importance of environmental conservation.
