I'm an avid and inquisitive learner who studies urban systems in a variety of forms. From transportation networks in New York City to social insecurity in Uganda, I seek to better understand how people shape their space and create sustainable, safer and more livable cities.

Map Projects

The first map series (Left) represent a site selection process conducted for the Office of Sustainability and Department of Grounds at SUNY Geneseo. Site suitability was determined by land parcel visibility from popular paths and the slope of the terrain. The steeper the terrain the more inconvenient it is for grounds to mow and maintain, while the visibility of that parcel determines how manicured the University would want to keep that parcel of land. These criteria allowed me to identify potential sites. I then deliberated with interested parties to designate the previously identified sites as permaculture ground cover, no mow areas, or select mowing areas. I took these categorizations and created a final map to be proposed to the University President for approval. The second map series (right) investigates the impact of the L Subway line closure by analyzing land use in the borough of Brooklyn as it compares to the land use of the L Subway line service area. I generated the L Line service area using network analysis to create a 500 meter buffer along surface streets from subway entrances. Zoning data by land parcel described land use of the Brooklyn, the combined service area of Brooklyn subways, and the L line in particular. The results demonstrate a significantly higher representation of M1 zoning classification in the L Line service area when compared to the other categories. M1 is a light manufacturing classification which can be quite flexible compared to other zoning classifications. M1 light manufacturing can be repurposed to be residential and even commercial with the right renovations.

Written Reports

  • Flood Mitigation Alongside the River Thames

  • Drowning in Fragmented Governance

  • The Insidious Social Impacts of Gentrification

I created the above reports while studying environmental and infrastructure planning at the University of Groningen. They include comparative analysis, policy propositions, and social impact assessments. The reports demonstrate my individual and group work and my ability to work independently, as well as manage and edit group work.
