Isabel Carrera Zamanillo

PhD Student, Environment


I am a Mexican biologist and a doctoral candidate in Environmental Studies at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at University of Washington. My research intends to provide a better understanding of the link between cultural and environmental identities through the lens of traditional foodways. I am mainly interested in the impact of migration in the connection between the mentioned identities in Latino/as living in the Seattle Metropolitan Area. This study intends to promote a better understanding of the role that different forms of identity play in environmental behavior. Furthermore, since Latinos are becoming one of the biggest minorities in the United States, this topic is important as a way of social integration and a manner of environmental justice.
