Hi! My name is Manuela, but everybody calls me Manu. I am originally from Medellin, Colombia, but I have lived in Colorado for a few years now. I graduated in May of 2017 with a B.A. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, and Spanish Language and Literature from the University of Colorado Boulder. Go Buffs! During my undergraduate years, I conducted research on the effects of climate change in grasshoppers, and the effects of habitat fragmentation on the trophic guilds of Australian beetle. I am really excited to be working as an advisor, given my background as a Peer Advisor for almost 3 years and as a Lead Peer Advisor for 1 year.
