The only reason I’m here is because I left Canada and was exposed to a racist southern United States curriculum that already had mechanisms to deal with prejudice and segregation… I was often labelled Mexican. Ironically, by checking a box, somebody put me on a scientific community outreach program for underprivileged minority kidsAndrew Medeiros.

Freshwater ecology and Arctic environmental sustainability have been the focus of Prof. Andrew Medeiros’ career as a biologist. This descendant of Portuguese immigrants spends much of his time doing field research in northern ecosystems, studying how they have evolved over the past 10,000 years and how they may respond to present environmental changes.
