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 and Fellow-Mentor. My research addresses 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. For the past fifteen 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.
