I am a fifth year doctoral student 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 examines young adult mobilities and imaginaries in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
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.
