Gabriela Rodríguez Jácome

Social Science Researcher

Gabriela has been a social scientist at the Charles Darwin Research Station since July 2019. She is a geographer and has a diploma in integrated risk and disaster management and a master's degree in territorial planning and environmental management.
She researches fisheries from a socio-economic perspective and her research includes topics such as local ecological knowledge of fishermen and fisherwomen, gender, climate change, food security, food systems, culture-conservation and governance. She considers that the analysis of fisheries from the value chain "from the sea to the table" allows for the inclusion of all actors involved as co-responsible for the sustainability of fisheries in Galapagos.
She is currently developing her doctoral thesis on the relationship between culture and nature in Galapagos and is working on several projects on cultural heritage as a tourist and cultural resource in the Galapagos.
