Rebecca Arias

Position title: Graduate Research Assistant (PhD)


Here at the University of Wisconsin by way of sunny & swampy Florida! I’m originally from New Jersey, so I have experienced winters before!

I received my BS in Plant Science from the University of Florida and the primary goal of my project will be on improving disease resistance in common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris

I love hiking and traveling! I love documenting things, so I’m taking pictures near constantly. I also have two cats, Basil & Holly!
