I’m an economic geographer that researches cites, technology, and uneven development. My research follows the theme of mapping (more than) capital, intersecting with urban economic geography, digital geography, and critical GIS. I’m currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Systems at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
