Victoria Reyes-García

ICREA Research Professor

I hold a PhD in Anthropology (U. of Florida), an MSc in Agroecology and Sustainable Development (U. Internacional de Andalucía), a postgraduate degree in Amazonian Studies (FLACSO-Ecuador), and a BSc in History (UAB).

My research encompasses the interdisciplinary study of the dynamic relations among peoples, biota, and environments. I use a multidisciplinary perspective (working with ecologists, economists, psychologists, agronomists, archaeologists, and computer scientists) and empirical data to analyse 1) the effects of global change on rural livelihoods and local environments and 2) social responses to environmental changes. My research draws on insights from anthropology and the behavioural sciences to work at multiple levels- from the views of villagers in developing nations to those of policy-makers in industrial nations. My current areas of research include 1) local indicators of climate change impacts, 2) public participation in the documentation of local knowledge, 3) the adaptive nature of local environmental knowledge, 4) Indigenous peoples and cultural change, and 5) local participation in biodiversity conservation.
