Alia Hussain

Senior Academic Advisor


Born and raised in Las Cruces, NM, I have spent almost my entire life in New Mexico and I am loving living in Albuquerque.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in History degree from NMSU in 2010 and I have completed some graduate work in Environmental Economics and Policy at Duke University in Durham, NC (and yes, I went to the basketball games, Go Blue Devils!)  I was also a Policy and Lobbying Intern in Washington, DC while I was a student at Duke and I loved the atmosphere there.  I decided to take some time off from school and move back to New Mexico, but I plan to finish my master's degree soon.  In my free time, I love to travel, go to shows, eat delicious sushi (with lots of ginger and wasabi), watch movies, and spend time with friends and family.  I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed here at UNM!
