I am a phd candidate in the Community and Regional Planning Program. I am interested in social justice, youth geographies and urban design, and I hope to contribute to radical planning theories and methodologies. My dissertation work is an ethnographic project with young adults in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, examining their mobilities and imaginaries.
Prior to arriving at UT-Austin, I had a variety of work experiences, including working as an intern architect, teaching small children, and managing the sustainability program at the National League of Cities, where I worked with sustainability directors and local elected officials to progress city sustainability efforts in the United States.
