Research Interests

I am a planning scholar who uses mixed methods and whose research is theoretically grounded in environmental psychology. My research interests center on how people perceive and respond to their built, natural, and social environments, with the larger aim of understanding and improving our changing neighborhoods, towns, cities, and regions. Within this broadly conceived research area, I have touched on topics such as environmental perception, governance and social justice, transit-oriented development and travel behavior, quality of life, and demographic change.
