Associate Professor, Dept. Head, and Director of URS Program
I am an urban geographer primarily interested in the relationship between population change and urban development. Given that we are living in the “age of migration” how is this changing the political, economic and cultural life of US cities? I am also deeply interested in questions of social justice and governance, and trying to figure out how urban governments can effectively manage “cities of difference.” Given these interests I have a wide variety of different research projects going on examining (1) Migration and Citizenship; (2) The politics Food Scarcity and Food Deserts; (3) Geographies of Dance.
