Using a transdisciplinary systems approach, my research focuses on understanding how landscape structure affects ecosystem services in cities.
Community-led Green Infrastructure Design
Does community engagement in urban planning make green infrastructure (and neighborhoods) more resilient ?
Urban Agriculture and Soil Lead
Urban agriculture and soil lead are often seen as competing interests - could gardening be part of the solution?
Urban Vegetation and Shrinking Cities
Do we need to rethink environmental justice indicators for shrinking cities? Are they green, but not just?
Urban Tree Canopy and Environmental Justice
Money may not grow on trees, but do trees grow on money?
Funding Community-University Partnerships
You've heard of seed money to support new research. Could soil money support community-university partnerships?
Soil Lead Contamination in the City
Cities are patchy places - can that patchiness be used to explain patterns of soil lead?
