Janet M. Lopez
M.S. Candidate

I am originally from Miami, FL and attended Florida International University, from where I have a B.A. in International Relations and Cultural Anthropology as well as a Certificate in African and African Diaspora Studies. I am currently in Panama with the Panam Field Work Experience as an intern for the United Nations Development Programme Regional Centre for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Rachel Bonet

Alumna, M.S., Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species

I am a M.S. alumna in International Development, and I am focusing on environmental issues, with environmental and wildlife conservation being of particular interest to me. The interconnected nature of development and the environment as well as the necessarily international nature of environmental issues led me to Tulane's Payson program as it allows for specialization of course content to fit one's specific academic and career backgrounds and interests.
