Wilzave Quiles-Guzmán

Graduate Research Assistant, Indigenous Resilience Center

I am a Puerto Rican woman deeply interested in serving, community engagement, and water resources. Presently, I am studying a MS in Water, Society and Policy at the University of Arizona. My current goals are to create meaningful connections, give my best to culminate my master's degree, and to be intentionally present in every conversation, learning experiences, and work environment. I am currently a Graduate Research Assistant and work as a project coordinator for interdisciplinary research titled: “Assessing Navajo COVID-19 Risk and Increasing Indigenous Resilience”. My main professional interest lies in the intersection of science and society with a special focus on water resources. I have done many literature reviews and participated on research on water resources through different perspectives and geographical locations, making me more passionate about the field of water. I see myself as a servant, leader, self-driven, and hardworking woman that desires with all her heart to break any negative cycle within my past generations.
