Prof. Miriam Diaz is a Venezuelan scientist, who is a specialist in 
tropical ecology and a researcher on mitigation strategies for the 
effects of climate change. She is in the US invited by the AAAS 
(American Association for the Advanced in Science) for their annual 
awards meeting in DC.

Dr. Diaz is knowledgeable about the catastrophic environmental 
consequences of El Nino in Venezuela, and will provide an accurate 
picture of the critical situation on the ground, which has to do with 
severe drought, loss of harvests, contributing to the scarcity of 
agricultural products. She will also explain the programs or strategies 
that scientist, academic and public institutions are doing to mitigate 
this situation.

During her visit to Boston she is interested in meeting with researchers 
and environmentalist activist in the field of climate change for 
possible collaboration.
