Every year, the MSC L.T. Jordan Fellows publicly present their internationally conducted research, highlighting their personal experiences while being immersed in a foreign culture.

With partial funding provided by the MSC L.T. Jordan Institute for International Awareness, Chris Traveled to Calnali, Mexico during Summer 2017 to interview locals in the area about their knowledge of environmental impacts in the river systems, the importance the river health has on them, and their description of the male swordtail fish, Xiphophorus. Additionally Chris will conduct behavioral field trials on female preference for hybrid males, an important aspect of the environmental impacts.
