As one of our initiatives, the Africa Center hosts Field Notes, a communications project that serves as a platform for students, faculty, research partners and practitioners to communicate and discuss pressing social, economic and environmental issues of African sustainability.

In the latest installment of Field Notes, we chat with Masters student Monica Lasky. We speak about her recent trip to South Africa for ecological field research, some of the challenges of conducting cross-cultural research, and her achievement in receiving an NSF GRFP award.
