My research falls at the intersection of human-environment interaction. I am an Assistant Professor in the Earth and Environmental Studies department. I received my doctoral degree 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, sustainability policy, urban political ecology,  environmental inequity, perception, and health, planning, water contamination and resources, environmental gentrification and displacement, brownfields, and waterfront redevelopment.
