Hello! My name is Andrea Orozco, and I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I am a second-year at Oberlin College with a prospective neuroscience major. As a first-generation, queer Latinx student pursuing a career in research, I want to help create an empowering and supportive community that uplifts underrepresented students in STEM at Oberlin College. During my free time, I enjoy playing guitar and observing birds in nature!

Elise is a fourth-year student majoring in environmental studies and biology, with a minor in comparative American studies. They have been a part of research at Oberlin since their second year, when they joined the Africatown Collaboration with Professor Jay Fiskio. They focus on community-directed research, digital humanities, and oral history in the context of environmental and racial justice. Elise joined the OUR team as a student office assistant during OSRI 2021 and is continually inspired by both the work and relationships that undergraduate researchers at Oberlin build together.
