Research Associate

Gabriela works with the Agroecology Support to the Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP) project.

My interest for human and ecological interactions has brought me through a variety of studies. More recently, my work has been centered on agricultural practices that sustain farmers and healthy systems. Agroecology in particular, with its attention to the ecological, social and scientific aspects of agriculture inspires my research efforts to contribute practical scientific insights towards building sustainable food systems. The academic training and research experience have provided me with data-analysis skills and a collaborative work attitude. I have completed my PhD studies at Colorado State University in 2010 and I have conducted research in South Africa, Guinea Bissau and the United States.
