Hello! My name is Joia Fishman. I'm a recent college graduate of UC Santa Cruz. I have a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and hope to pursue a career in restoration ecology. I am currently working as a lab assistant for UC Davis on a project based in the Mojave Desert on the effects of solar panels on desert annuals.
