I'm a geographer studying how to make urban neighborhoods and food systems healthier and more equitable. My broad interests are in urban development and inequality, geographic information systems, political geography, and place effects on health. More specifically, my research focuses on the role of maps and spatial analysis in shaping our understanding of hunger, housing, poverty, and neighborhood development. I'm also interested in the role of participatory research methods in mobilizing community action around these issues.

I welcome interest from graduate students interested in studying disparities in access to food and housing, participatory and engaged research, open source GIS tools, and community development.
