I am interested in examining the spatial and social compositions of urban regions. I have a background in architectural history (ba), historic preservation (cert.), city planning (ma), and I am currently a phd candidate in public and urban policy at the new school. Prior to my appointment as a graduate research trainee at mcgill university’s peter guo-hua fu school of architecture (2019-2020), I was visiting student researcher at uc-berkeley’s college of environmental design (2018-2019). I have nearly ten years of experience working as an urban planner and architectural historian in both public and private sectors in Los Angeles and New York City and I am currently the digital research manager of new york university’s city food research group.
