Susana Canela

GFI Fellow - Class of 2018

Undergraduate student, earth systems science
UC Merced


Susan will research the desertification of UC Merced’s surrounding farms and reach out to land owners whose land is turning into desert. She will then work to provide land owners with the scientific knowledge, research, resources and help needed to change the microclimate of their soil and reverse the desertification of their land through holistic planned grazing. The overarching goal of this project is to address climate change and produce more food than eroding soil.
