Expertise and Activities: 

I am interested in rhetorics of public health and safety in relation to space, place and the built environment. Specifically I study structures of health, housing and transportation in Chicago and Atlanta to explore how space and discourse intersect to produce and maintain particular (and often unequal) modes of urban publicness.
