A BIOGRAPHY Towards Theory + Practice:

As an engaged scholar, I investigate through the fields of urban planning, public health, and Science & Technology Studies (STS) how the built environment, policymaking process, and social movements influence sustainability and population health in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color.

My research agenda is motivated by more than a decade of senior-level experience in the public and private sectors, where I conducted applied research and actively engaged in the policymaking process. This included working for the California State Legislature as a senior consultant, lobbyist, gubernatorial appointee, and as vice chair of the city planning commission.
