Dr. Garcia's research interests focus on understanding how social differences, specifically those based on gender, can affect the implementation of agricultural innovations; or how the introduction of technologies in agricultural settings can impact people's lives. She is also interested in identifying women´s contributions in agriculture and analyzing female empowerment in rural communities. She uses multiple methodological approaches, including qualitative and quantitative techniques and has worked mainly with Latin American smallholders in countries such as Colombia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador.
