About Claudia Radel

I joined USU in 2005, after receiving my PhD in Geography from Clark University. My research explores the changing nature of natural resource-based livelihood strategies for individuals, households, and communities in the rural global south. I am interested particularly in how gender ideologies and practices both shape and are changed by these strategies. My research also examines the gendered nature of resource access, control, and decision-making. Current projects include (1) research on gender, conservation, and agriculture in communities surrounding Mexico's Calakmul Biosphere Reserve; (2) research on gendered labor out-migration and its relationship to environmental change in southern Mexico; and (3) research with pastoral women's savings and credit cooperatives in southern Ethiopia.
Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as a community development consultant in Barranquilla, Colombia. I hold an MPA and Certificate in Science, Technology, Environment and Policy from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, where I studied international development. I received my AB degree from Brown University in Environmental Studies and in Comparative Development Studies. I have spent time living and working in various countries in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa, including a year attending the University of Zimbabwe as a Rotary scholar in a graduate program in tropical resource ecology.
