Research and Professional Interests

I am interested in issues of environmental and social justice, particularly related to climate change and natural disasters.  In the past, I worked as a GRA in the Climate and Community Resilience project and Led by Dr. Katherine Lieberknecht, which focuses on developing a community-based online portal to improve resilience in Austin, TX. I also worked as an intern in the Texas General Land Office, in the team that focuses on managing disaster recovery funds in Texas. Before changing my focus to planning, I worked in a few firms as an architect focused on interior design.
