Laudadio Presents Research, Studies Abroad

Message Lab research assistant Marisa Laudadio has had a busy spring semester. After returning from Harvard, she traveled to Jackson, Mississippi, twice to present her research at both the Mississippi State Honors Conference and at the Posters in the Rotunda event hosted at the state capitol. In addition to being able to represent The Message Lab and share her research with legislators, Laudadio also received first place in the humanities poster division at the state honors conference.

Earlier this month, Laudadio also traveled to Colombia through a study abroad program focusing on the intersection between agriculture, culture, and policy in rural areas. She traveled with two other students from Mississippi State and two professors affiliated with the Social Science Research Center. In addition to visiting Bogot√°, Laudadio traveled to Santa Marta and researched the difference between large scale production of bananas versus small farm production. She greatly improved her foreign language skills while collaborating with students from SENA University in Colombia.
