Andrea Y. Salazar is a dual-degree student on track for a J.D and Master of Environmental Law and Policy at VLS. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Gender and Sexuality Studies. During her senior year, Andrea presented a piece entitled Berta Cáceres: Hondureña Revolucionaria at the NMSU Research and Art Symposium as a tribute to the life and work of the prominent feminist environmentalist. As a Gilman International scholar, Andrea studied engineering abroad in Seoul, South Korea for an academic year. She participated in a Korean laboratory internship program operating process controls for carbon capture experiments. Andrea was also a research assistant in the Brewer Biomass Thermochemical Processing lab at NMSU. Her research involved analyzing the viability of local invasive plant species biomass as a feedstock to create a sustainable crop soil additive which increases soil water retention. Andrea’s passion lies at the intersection of Public Policy, Environmental Engineering, and Social Justice. She hopes to return to her hometown, El Paso, Texas, one day.
