Welcome to Dr. Nicole Pacino, Expert in Latin American history!
An active traveler, Dr. Pacino based her dissertation research on several years working with Andean environmental and health activists. She brings expertise in the history of medicine and public health, Latin American revolutions and social movements, and gender history to UAH. Her dissertation explores public health in post-revolutionary Bolivia from 1952-1964.
For her next research project, Dr. Pacino has her sights set on quinoa. Not just food for healthy hippies, quinoa provides a powerful lens through which Dr. Pacino plans to study the social and cultural history of the Andean region.
