Welcome! I am a researcher, educator, and public scholar. I have a PhD in Urban Studies from the Toulan School of Urban Studies & Planning at Portland State University (PSU), where I was also a National Science Foundation-IGERT Fellow. My research addresses community engagement and grassroots social and environmental justice organizing in so-called green cities. I am currently the Research Coordinator at the Community Alliance of Tenants, where I am co-leading a community based participatory research project on culturally specific experiences of housing instability. I am also working on archival research for the Portland Black Gardens Oral History Project. For the past fourteen years, I have taught in university classrooms, public middle and high schools, social service agencies catering to homeless youth, and a wide variety of community-based settings.
