‌Megan Baumann (’08), sociology and history, pursuing a doctorate in geography at Penn State. “My field research in 2016 and 2017 was/is funded by Bioversity International, an agricultural research-for-development institution working on the tricot approach, a structure in which farmers trial various dry bean varieties that may be well-suited for the climatic conditions in their regions. As I move from my master's degree into doctoral research, my research will investigate farmers' local knowledge of their landscapes related to their management of seeds.”
