Rahe specializes in rural development and examines local economic development decision making and resources. One of her on-going research interests is the monitoring of rural prosperity and understanding the contributing factors for why some rural communities maintain vitality and others do not. Her dissertation examined the interactions between financial capital, social capital, and cultural capital in the long term development of rural communities.
