Shelly A. Biesel
Broadly, my research examines equity at the crossroads of economic development and environmental change.
Currently I am involved with two projects. My dissertation research focuses on gender-differentiated risk associated with biofuel development in Brazil.
I also work with Don Nelson on a second project in Northeast Brazil, using anthropological and applied understandings of water ethics to investigate water allocation and governance.
