Zona Abierta:
Radical Research from
BIPOC Scholars at UIC

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center

Join us as Bridge to the Faculty (B2F) scholars share their experiences and respective research with the UIC community. Through an intersectional lens, these scholars reveal the complexity and specificity of their contemporary research and how the lives of those in the margins are impacted.

Dr. Gabriela Nunez Mir from the College of Biological Sciences, will focus on her research on invasive insect pests that have devastating effects on forest ecosystems. Her research takes advantage of the extensive amount of spatial and temporal distributional data available for a highly damaging forest pest, Lymantria dispar (spongy moth), to explore regional patterns on the local dynamics of invasive spread.

For access needs or questions, email or call 312-996-3095. The LCC is wheelchair accessible. Auto-captions enabled on Zoom. ASL Interpretation services may be available by contacting the LCC 5 business days before the program. All audiences are welcome.
