SEB Student Committee
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of us – about SEB and the student group in general, opportunities or resources you would like to see us work with the SEB Council to make possible, or about our individual research!
We hail from diverse programs worldwide, and hope our diverse perspectives will increase student involvement in Ethnobotany, broadly defined.

Guadalupe Maldonado Andrade
She has previously studied the cultural and local economic value of an invasive reed (Typha domingensis) of Lake Patzcuaro, Michoacán, Mexico. The invasive reed surrounding Lake Patzcuaro has been subject to invasive management practices. However, after immersive participant observation into the mechanisms of T. domingensis use to make crafts, it was clear that this invasive reed had an immense cultural and local economic significance for many people in the surrounding towns of Lake Patzcuaro.
Guadalupe devotedly serves as an abortion doula on days when she is not researching or teaching. She also prepares physical and virtual materials to educate anyone on the legality of disseminating safe-managed abortion practices.
