Hola! My name is Katalina Salas, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas at El Paso in the Environmental Science and Engineering program. My research focuses on how people understand, communicate, and reason about future scenarios of food and water availability using scientific data and models.

I am a TGP alumnus who attended the 2017 Peru program, and I loved it! I am an avid traveler and a lover of all things nature, but I am also deeply rooted in connecting to my community and education. TGP provided the perfect harmony between these two passions for me. I was surrounded by genuine individuals who, similar to me, want to leave a lasting impact on this world that leads to a sustainable future. From this experience, I grew academically, professionally, and personally! I gained life long friends and connected to Peru in a way many will never understand unless they have the TGP experience. I look forward to sharing my journey with TGP and getting you on your very own adventure!
