We are lucky to have another great educator join our BEMP team! Bienvenido Laura!
Laura Pagès Barceló is originally from a tiny town in Catalunya, Spain. She left her country five years ago to study sea turtles in Costa Rica, after which she traveled to Albuquerque to visit a friend for a few weeks, but fell in love with the landscape and never left. She is currently a graduate student in the Department of Biology at the University of New Mexico where she is finishing her master’s thesis using stable isotopes to study sea turtle diets. Joining BEMP has allowed Laura to combine her interest in education and science. When Laura is not studying sea turtles or working with students she enjoys spending time with the people she loves through rock climbing, hiking, and dancing.
