Megan Mills-Novoa

Ph.D. Candidate

I am a Ph.D. candidate and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the School of Geography and Development. Originally from the flat cornfields of central Minnesota, I research how agricultural landscapes and livelihoods are transformed under climate change adaptation projects in the Ecuadorian Andes. 

Prior to my graduate studies at the University of Arizona, I worked for five years as an agricultural adaptation researcher and practitioner, first as a Fulbright Fellow studying climate change impacts on Chilean vineyards and then as a Luce Scholar placed with the Centre for Rural Development in northern Vietnam. I graduated in 2009 from Lewis & Clark College with a degree in environmental studies and conservation biology.
