Teresa Patricia Feria

Professor
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

In 2007 I earned a doctoral degree in biology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and subsequently finished two post-doctoral appointments (Missouri Botanical Garden-Center for Conservation and Sustainable Development and UNAM, Mexico) before I joined the Biology Department at the University of Texas – Pan American as an assistant professor in 2008 (now The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley). My research focuses on global change ecology as related to endangered, invasive, and vector-borne disease species, habitat restoration, food security, and climate change.
