Collecting heat data at outdoor COVID-19 vaccination sites to better understand personal heat exposure with Nicole Iroz-Elardo and Erika Schmidt.

My research focuses on the intersection of urban planning and climate change with the goal of helping create more sustainable and resilient cities. I am currently interested in emerging heat governance structures and how cities can better mitigate heat in the built environment and manage heat risk to increase heat resilience. While most of my research is focused on the intersection of policy and climate change, I have also led several projects collecting heat data to improve decision-making.

I am always open to discuss collaboration opportunities. If you are a prospective undergraduate or graduate student who shares similar research interests, please contact me.
