Tracy’s research asks broadly what it takes for eco-social systems to transform toward sustainability and how such transformations can be facilitated. Examples of specific questions include:
How can industry become more strategic and purposeful in taking an increasing role in sustainability? What are the roles, strategies and incentives of actors working from within supply networks to create change?
Her areas of interest include food systems, global patterns in marine and terrestrial systems, cross-scale interactions, corporate social responsibility, and natural-resource production networks.
She brings expertise in research design, spatial and network analyses, text analysis and cognitive research methods, and community ecology.
Tracy has been a NASA Earth System Science Fellow, Fulbright Scholar and Rotary Scholar. She also was awarded the inaugural Marianne Schmink Award for the Outstanding Dissertation in Tropical Conservation and Development.
