Ranco's research focuses on the ways in which indigenous communities in the United States resist environmental destruction by using indigenous science and diplomacies to protect their natural and cultural resources. Ranco has published in each of these areas—environmental risk and justice, climate change, invasive species, cultural resources, research ethics, indigenous subsistence issues, university-indigenous relations, and tribal governance in a variety of academic and non-academic publications. Ranco serves on a number of Native American boards including the Maine Indian Tribal State Commission and Wabanaki Public Health and Wellness.
