I’m an economic geographer whose research focuses on the nexus of cites, technology, and the geographies of power. More broadly, the common theme of technology undergirds and connects my research on labor market dynamics during industrial restructuring, geographies of urban inequality, and political ecology. Methodologically, I seek to combine advanced quantitative methods, critical GIS, and qualitative research.
My research spans the fields of planning, geography, and science, technology and society (STS). I split my overarching research interests across three broad projects – all connected through the framework of mapping (more than) capital.
