My research explores spatially interconnected struggles around structural racial, economic, and gender violence. My central research goal is to generate evidence of and for more livable and equitable geographies. I use critical qualitative and quantitative methods—often in collaboration with community organizations and leaders. My latest research explored connections between slavery-era and more contemporary Black flight from and place-making beyond racial police violence.
I received my PhD in Earth and Environmental Sciences in 2019 from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
