Student research with Dr. Salisbury has resulted in articles, posters, and class-based research projects.  Sophomore George Appling even presented his work on the impact of a proposed road in Peru’s congress.

Diego Leal (Interdisciplinary Studies 2015) and Ale Antelo (International Studies 2008) are lead author and co-author on their respective publications in the Journal of Latin American Geography.
