Georgia Sinimbu Silva
Recent PhD in Ecology at University of Utah
Georgia has a B.E. from the University of Brasilia and a M.S. in Ecology from the National Institute of Amazonian research (both in Brazil). She just recently received her Ph.D. while studying ant-plant associations in the Brazilian Amazon. Her work explored how plants benefit from attracting ants as bodyguards, and in which conditions these bodyguards will be most effective.
