Profile

My research falls at the intersection of human and environmental geography. I am an Assistant Professor in the Earth and Environmental Studies department. I received my PhD from The Graduate Center at The City University of New York. I focus on research that explores human-environment interaction through environmental perception and policy, identity, and planning. My work in the past has focused on the impacts of environmental policy and the production of urban space through greening policies. I am interested in environmental inequity and restoration, and how this process is shifting as a result of changing landscapes.

My research interests concern: environmental and human geography, cultural and political ecology, sustainability policy, environmental inequity, perception, and health, planning, water contamination and resources, environmental gentrification and displacement, brownfields, and waterfront redevelopment.

Specialization

Environmental and human geography; sustainability practices and policy; urban political ecology; environmental inequity, environmental perception, health, and planning; water contamination and resources; environmental gentrification and displacement; brownfields; waterfront redevelopment, risk perception and assessment
