Nataly Garcia has been awarded the Dan and Jeanne Stokols Social Ecology Graduate Fellowship Award. Garcia is pursuing her Ph.D. in Social Ecology.
Earlier this year, Garcia graduated with her Master's in sociocultural anthropology from Cal State L.A., after having earned her bachelor's degree at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Now, she seeks to study the labor and environmental injustices faced by Latinos in the U.S.
Already, she has researched the effects of pesticides on agricultural workers in strawberry fields, along with the history of pesticide use in California and its effects on Mexican-American farmworkers. She has given various talks and presentations, including one at the Southwestern Anthropological Association's annual conference.
Garcia is bilingual in English and Spanish.
